Children, neighbors and friends are invited to join the Darien Nature Center's Amazing Park Pursuit, a nature-based scavenger hunt for the entire family.

The nature center wants to introduce Darien families to the town's parks: Sellecks/Dunlap Woods, Weed Beach, Woodland Park and Cherry Lawn Park. Pick up a passport at the Nature Center during the week of May 23.

Participants can start the hunt any time from May 28 to June 5. Students from the DHS National Honor Society have come up with maps and clues to follow. When participants reach the end of the hunt, they'll find a stamp to mark their passport -- proof that they've been there. Participants can go at their own pace and take as much time as they need.

There will be an ice cream party for all participants at the nature center June 5 at 2 p.m. to celebrate their accomplishments.
