This free family activity is brought to you by the Barrington Public Library and the Barrington Land Conservation Trust.

Nature detectives: Put your skills to test with the Look & Find Family Nature Walk/Raffle. Search for clues as you explore the beautiful trails of Osamequin Nature Preserve anytime between Saturday, April 6 to Sunday, April 21, dawn to dusk. There’s plenty of parking!

Hidden clues along the trails will help you solve a word scramble. Submit your completed word scramble to the Barrington Public Library by Sunday, April 21, and you’ll be entered into a raffle to win a hiking backpack full of goodies! Just snap a picture of your completed word scramble with your child’s name and email it to kids@barringtonlibrary.org. Or you can drop it off before April 21 to the McCulloch Children’s Room at Barrington Public Library during open hours. The drawing will be held on Monday, April 22.
