After a short shower early in the afternoon the day became warm and sunny.
Prior to families arriving, the Treasure Hunt clues were laid as a trail through Hubbard's Hills.
They were discreetly tied to trees, bushes, benches etc
Each family was given a sheet of instructions. They were sent off to find each clue and to answer the natural history question at that site. There were twenty clues to find, spread throughout the Hills. All the questions had multi choice answers and ranged from being very simple to more challenging.
When the families had found and completed the questionnaire, they were able to compare their replies with the answer sheet.
Each child (twenty in all) was then able to chose some 'treasure', an animal eraser pencil or a packet of glittery stickers.
All the families seemed to enjoy the Treasure Hunt.
Thanks are due to Louise who compiled the clues and questions and also hid them in the Hills.
