Do a neighbourhood scavenger hunt (easy read activity)

We have teamed up with the Scottish Commission Learning Disability to produce this ‘easy read’ nature-themed scavenger hunt for around your neighbourhood. It’s a wonderfully accessible way for everyone to notice nature no matter your ability.

Easy read is one form of accessible information for people with learning disabilities. Easy read is about making written information easier to understand using short simple sentences with pictures.
