Here’s something fun that popped up in my Facebook newsfeed I wanted to share with you! There is a fun app called “Agents of Discovery” where you can complete missions at a number of trails and parks. The goal of the family-friendly app is to get you outdoors and learning more about nature around you!
Here’s how it works:
- First, download the app. You can find it at the App Store or Google Play by searching for “Agents of Discovery.”
- Within the app, you’ll be prompted to create a username and password.
- Next, you’ll be able to select which mission you’d like to try.
When I did this step, I noticed a few missions at nearby parks:
As you can see, there is one currently available for the Tacoma Nature Center! If you play and complete the mission, you can receive a collectible prize. I have no idea what the prize is, but it may be a fun thing to do with the kids if you’ve got a free Saturday. It appears that there is a new mission every quarter. Even better, the Tacoma Nature Center can provide a temporary WiFi password and even a smartphone to borrow if you want to play their mission! Awesome!
This app is new to me, so I’m not sure how it would work at the various parks in the area, but it may be something to give a whirl. For more information, please see this page at the Metro Parks website.
Are you familiar with this app and how it works? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
