Get Outside with The James Museum’s Spring Break Scavenger Hunt!

Calling all adventurers and explorers! The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art announced a cool new scavenger hunt as part of the museum’s latest wildlife special exhibition, Survival of the Fittest: Envisioning Wildlife and Wilderness with the Big Four, Masterworks, from the Riijksmuseum Twenthe and the National Museum of Wildlife Art.

Inspired by the theme of experiencing nature first-hand, museum visitors can spend their spring break exploring different outdoor areas and natural habitats around St. Petersburg. This new experience is designed to celebrate the richness of Pinellas County’s landscape and the organizations working to protect it.

“The scavenger hunt is a way for visitors to actively connect with the themes of our exhibition and experience firsthand the importance of conservation efforts,” said Emily Kapes, Curator of Art at The James Museum. “Just as these artists ventured into the wilderness to create their masterpieces, we encourage participants to follow in their footsteps and explore the natural beauty of our surroundings.”

How it Works

All you have to do is pick up a Field Guide inside the Survival of the Fittest exhibit at The James Museum. You’ll be given a list of five local organizations dedicated to wildlife and environmental conservation. When you show a staff member your Field Guide at the front desk or admission center of each spot, you’ll receive an exclusive and unique sticker to that specific location!

Participating Locations

While some of these places don’t require admission to receive a sticker, adventurers are still encouraged to explore the area and everything each location has to offer.
