Tracking the Thunderbird game makes it return!
Kitsap County’s Department of Parks and Recreation is
announcing the return of an environmental game that helps participants learn
about the water cycle. “Tracking the Thunderbird” is a great way for
participants of all ages to learn about the water cycle while solving clues
that take you to several locations where the mythological Thunderbird has
left a “Track”.
New clues will be released on the County Park’s activities webpage on the
first Friday of each month, February through October. This game is ideal for
families, schools, scout groups and more. Pursuing the Thunderbird Tracks is
a great way to get outside and discover parts of Kitsap County where there
are bears, beavers, and osprey nests. Grab a map and start your quest for
the nine Thunderbird Tracks!
A kick-off party is set for January 25, 2013 at the Silverdale Waterfront
Park from 5:00 to 6:00 pm. Attend the party and receive the first clue a
week before it’s released on the website! Dress warm and bring the whole
family! Free hot chocolate will be provided at the event. Reduce waste by
bringing your own mug!
At the end of the game a party is planned to reward participants that found
all nine Thunderbird Tracks. Those who find all nine tracks will receive a
Some tracks are located in State owned parks that require a Discover pass to
for a flyer about the game. More information about “Tracking the
Thunderbird” is available online at
