About this Event

Calling all nature-loving families! Join Hill Country Conservancy for a nature-themed scavenger hunt along the Violet Crown Trail. We'll provide a guide for you and your little adventurer on your quest to make rubbings of your favorite foliage, identify critter habitats, and recognize the shapes and sounds that make up this special natural area. Hill Country Conservancy staff and board members will be on hand to answer questions and help make this a fun exploration of this half-mile section of the Violet Crown Trail in the Deer Park neighborhood.

  • 10:00 AM: Welcome and Trail Orientation
  • 10:15 AM-10:45AM: Scavenger Hunt and self-guided exploration!
  • 10:45-11:00AM: Regroup to "show and tell" what you discovered and have some snacks!

What is provided:

  • Scavenger hunt booklets from the City of Austin's Community Tree Preservation Division
  • Crayons or colored pencils
  • Water and light, healthy snacks

Know before you go:

  • Attendance is free, but please register to ensure you receive all the information you need to have a great time!
  • Go before you go! There are no restrooms at this trailhead, so please plan accordingly.
  • Two-leggers only! While this section of the Violet Crown Trail is dog-friendly, please leave all pets in the comfort of your home for this event.
  • Bring your own vessel. We'll have water available to refill water bottles, and coffee for grown-ups. Please help us reduce waste by bringing your own tumbler.
  • Dress for mess. This is an outdoor trail, which means there will be dirt! Wear shoes and clothing that are ready for adventure.
  • We'll send a reminder email the week of the event with detailed directions and parking information.
