The goal of Texas Nature Challenge is to get families and kids outdoors by visiting as many participating parks and nature areas in Texas as they can. At each site, participants complete activity challenges designed for family fun and nature exploration. To participate, register your team, download challenges, complete those challenges at the sites, then create a notebook about your experiences. Registered participants have a chance to win prizes in their home region based on their notebooks.

Share your secret knowledge of the parks and green spaces of Central Texas. Is there a special view or overlook you always visit at a little known park? Is there a unusual rock that makes a great picnic table at your neighborhood greenspace? Is there a wonderful trail that too few now enjoy? Here is your chance to add to the collective knowledge. Post here at the Idea Tree, where user ideas seed the growing forest of knowledge. Include a photo or even a map! Others can add their comments or your idea could spark additional inspiration from others.

Spend a weekend away in your own backyard. You don't need a big place for a big adventure. All you'll need is a tent and your family to join you. Pitch the tent, bring some flashlights, ghost stories and enjoy the time away from the world and with your kids. Have the adults or older kids be prepared to tell some ghost stories in advance to add a real sense of the outdoors.

Take turns thinking of people, places or even objects and then having the group ask yes or no questions to figure out who or what you are. This is the perfect activity for a hike or even just sitting outside.
