Baker Hill Scavenger Hunt

FBC has devised a scavenger hunt to help you spot some of the most notable flora & features on Baker Hill Preserve while you’re out hiking.

Check off each item as you find them, or take photos to share with us on social media!

Note that there are no physical markers out on the trail—you’ll have to use your map-reading skills and look closely!
