We are happy to announce that the first phase of a project we have been working on with the BLM is complete. Here is our release explaining it. Check it out!
Looking for entertaining, educational things for your kids to do outside? We have a suggestion: Agents of Discovery.
The Bureau of Land Management, with the assistance of Friends of the San Pedro River, has developed an augmented reality game for your cell phone for use at the San Pedro House. With this app, you go to the site and explore it, looking for challenges. The GPS in your phone helps you locate the challenges, each one of which is a different activity. The goal is to get kids outdoors, engage their curiosity, and learn about nature and history from within the familiar technical environment of their cell phones. The game is called Agents of Discovery.
How to play:
1. At home, or where WIFI is available, download the free “Agents of Discovery” app from Google Play or the Apple App Store to your mobile device.
2. Visit the San Pedro House at 9800 E Highway 90.
3. Open the “Agents of Discovery” app on your phone, select “Missions”, and then select the “San Pedro House” Mission. You can also login to create an account where you can save your activity.
4. HAVE FUN!
It is recommended that parents accompany children while playing this game. Until the San Pedro House Nature Store reopens and volunteers are present to help you, refer questions to: email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 520-459-2555.
