With the school year wrapping up and the dog days of summer fast approaching, what better time than now to get your family outside and reconnected with nature?

Don’t let your kids park themselves on the sofa. Turn off the TV and power down the laptop. It’s time for Texas Nature Challenge 2012.

Like a family nature hike with a little “Amazing Race” thrown in, the contest encourages families to spend their time together outside, active and learning about their local nature spots -- completing challenges along the way.

Coordinated by Texas Forest Service and Texas AgriLife Extension, the contest calls for families to visit designated nature sites across the region in which they live, completing challenges at each site. Participating families are eligible to win prizes.

Competitions are held regionally in six different parts of the state; Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, and San Antonio kicked off over the Memorial Day weekend and run through the summer. Contests based in the Rio Grande Valley and the Coastal Bend will kick off later this summer.

For more information or details about specific regional competitions, visit http://naturechallenge.tamu.edu.
