Join Navigation Games, Mass Audubon, and Cambridge Sports Union for orienteering and orienteering games at Magazine Beach. There will be activities for all ages. Explore the natural history of the park while navigating with the map to visit checkpoints.

Activities will include:

* Animal-O (for kids): A quest for pictures of native animals that you may see in real life in Magazine Beach or other Cambridge Parks. Participants will use a clue sheet to find checkpoints in order.

* Maze Race: Can you find checkpoints in a maze in the order shown on the map? Electronic timing equipment will be used to check that you did the courses in the correct order.

* Park Exploration: Use a map to discover the natural world at Magazine Beach Park. Each checkpoint along the way will introduce you to a new habitat to observe.
