July and August are a relatively lazy time for wildlife. But while many animals hide from the heat, there are some animals and plants that can be seen out enjoying the summer months.

The marsh mallow is flowering, shore birds peck at the sand for food, bats thrive on the abundance of insects, fawns are old enough to frolick a little farther from mom, and the young of eagles and osprey leave the nest for the first time.

Download this printable wildlife scavenger hunt for a fun activity for the whole family.
While we build up our archive, we've decided to share with you some family-friendly activities from other organizations. North Country Steps has put together a hiking how-to, with maps of trails, tips for those new to hiking, and suggestions on how to keep children safe on the trails.
