Scavenger Hunt

During the pandemic, many of us are looking for fun, safe activities. An outdoor scavenger hunt for plant species in your area is a great way to safely learn about plants. These images were taken in Meadowbrook Park in Urbana, IL in September. As we encounter colder weather, it is a great time to see prairie plants transition to their winter state, and familiar flowers may look very different. This can make identifying your favorite species even more challenging.

How many of these species can you find and/or identify? Good luck, and happy hunting. If you get stuck, you can save the image to your computer, and the names of many of the plants are saved as the image name.

Meadowbrook Park is located at 2808 S Race St., Urbana, IL.
