A Mobile Nature Scavenger Hunt Now Available at the Riverwalk

Naperville Park District offers several outdoor mobile tours at Knoch Knolls Nature Center, and now has added a nature scavenger hunt for the west end of the Naperville Riverwalk in an area known as Sindt Woods.

The Sindt Woods scavenger hunt is designed for children ages 4-10 and their families, scout troops or school groups. The scavenger hunt and other mobile tours can be viewed at napervilleparks.toursphere.com. Groups can go on the scavenger hunt anytime during park hours, which are daily from sunrise to one hour after sunset.

The scavenger hunt will lead participants through a series of clues to find destinations, or stops on the tour. Once they have reached each destination, they will be asked to participate in an activity or answer a question. The explanations provided at each stop include fun facts, photos of plants and wildlife, recordings of song birds or tips on observing nature.



All state fishing regulations apply; individuals between ages 16-65 need a valid fishing license, (15 and under do not need a license) which can be purchased through Illinois Department of Natural Resources or at local retail outlets. Naperville Park District’s rules for fishing can be found in Section 2.19 of Ordinance 641. Fishing is also available on the banks of the DuPage River.
