INFORMATION
Go on a "real life" expedition! Go to a local park, accredited zoo, or even just your backyard and look for interesting plants and animals.
STAY SAFE WHILE OUT AND ABOUT! Wear a mask if you will be in proximity to other people, and please only go to a zoo or aquarium if you feel safe doing so in your area. Take photos of interesting things you see. Obviously this is easy to do at a zoo, but if you're at a park you might have to get a bit more adventurous!
See a cool mushroom on a log? A squirrel or duck? Snap a picture! Identify each plant or animal you photograph, and write 1 fact about it! Must be at least 5 different specimens. Remember to wash your hands after your excursion!
 
BONUS: While you can do this prompt just with photos and writing, if you decide to also sketch the plants and animals, you will earn 10 bonus Prestige, for a total of 30!

 


Why must the zoo or aquarium be "accredited"? Click here to learn more!
While I can't stop anyone from visiting a non-accredited establishment, I strongly urge you to research and understand why putting your money towards and supporting accredited zoos is important to animal welfare, public education, and conservation!

★ Go to a local park, accredited zoo or aquarium, your backyard, etc.
