For Kids & Families

Finding ways to be in nature more often is important to us, and to our community.

FBC has created self-guided & virtual content to keep kids & families exploring and learning on our preserves & trails! Below you’ll find scavenger hunts, exploration videos, and activity & coloring pages.

We’ve also suggested some hikes for beginners—relatively flat hikes that also offer a water view. Remember to:

  • Wear sturdy shoes
  • Bring a water bottle
  • Remember your sunscreen & bug spray
