There are lots of things living in your garden and local parks or wild areas. Take part in the scavenger hunt to see what you can find. Will you be able to complete the hunt?

Our Scavenger Hunt and activity sheets ensure that the whole family can take part in the weekend fun, and have some time away from screens. Head outside to see what you can find!

This year our sheets focus on habitats. Learn about what lives On Solid Ground or In Watery Places. See how many you can find, and solve the puzzles on the back of the sheet.

Both sheets are for all ages, so you can choose which would suit you best. ‘On Solid Ground’ is designed to be a little easier, while ‘In Watery Places’ presents more of a challenge.

You can complete the Hunt or Challenges at any time, but be sure to share them with us during the month of May to be in with a chance to win a prize! More info below.

Download and print at home. If you can, please print double sided. Alternatively, request one to be posted to you. Orders for postage will close Friday 19th May at midnight. All requests will posted on Monday 22nd. Please place your order below.

If you can, please print off your sheets at home. Groups, such as schools and clubs, are more than welcome to take part too, but unfortunately we cannot cater for printing for groups.

We’d love to see your completed Scavenger Hunt or Bio Challenge. Post a photo on Twitter or Instagram with #BioHunt. Tag us on Twitter @IrishEnvNet or Instagram @national.biodiversity.week.
