Have you heard about Summer Quest?
Minute Man National Historical Park with our friends at The Umbrella Arts and Environment Program, Drumlin Farm-Mass Audubon, OARS, the Concord Land Conservation Trust, and some other area organizations, have created a ton of free summer activities for you to choose from! Complete those activities to collect badges and certificates of accomplishment. Earn enough badges and certificates and you’ll get a Summer Quest patch!
Explore the lands of the Concord watershed to learn about science, history, art and other topics this summer.
Summer Quest combines the best of each site:
- Minute Man’s history activities
- The Land Trust’s botany explorations
- OARS’ river adventures
- The Umbrella’s eco-art projects
- Drumlin Farm’s nature journaling
Subject activities are also being offered by The Old Manse, The Concord Free Public Library, The Concord Museum, Walden Woods Project, The Concord Division of Natural Resources, and Ninjas in Nature (Holy cow! That’s a lot of fun places to explore)
We know this summer is different, maybe you won’t be heading to camp, taking a vacation in a far away place, or even seeing your friends as often, but we hope Summer Quest can help make a summer at home a lot more fun. Right here in your own back yard, town, and community you can play outdoors, become an expert on local wildlife, explore history, and create fun art and nature projects.
What will you learn? What new places will you explore? What new skills will you develop? Gather your family, choose some activities and go find out!
If you have any questions about the program or how to complete the activities, please contact us.
