Nature Sleuths


Join the hunt for hidden treasure! Not the lost coins of yesteryear but something far older. Grab your gear and set out solo or with other adventurous explorers. This all-ages, family-friendly treasure hunt will take you through old-growth forests, hidden urban gems, beaver ponds, marine beaches, and much more!

Using the GooseChase app on your tablet or smartphone, explore and sleuth your way through one or many missions at 21 beautiful parks located in Thurston County.

Play along with the Goose Chase app and complete each park’s mission to receive a park-specific Nature Sleuth sticker and be entered into a drawing for cool prizes! The more missions you complete, the higher your chances are to win!
