Triangle Explorer

Trees with text - Are you a Triangle Explorer? Help your kids get outside and learning with the Triangle Explorer Challenge.

Become a Triangle Explorer!

The Triangle Explorer Challenge is an opportunity to get kids outside and learning in fun and engaging ways. In this incentive-based program, kids will conduct science experiments, explore nature, and create works of art. All of the activities can be completed at home with minimal supplies.

To earn badges, you must first enroll in the Triangle Explorer challenge using the link above. Then, select a badge from the list below and complete the required activities. Once you’re finished, use the Claim Badge link located at the bottom of the badge’s page. Be aware though, some of these badges only come around seasonally, so you better complete them while you can! Complete more activities to win special TLC prizes!

5 Badges: Win a one of a kind TLC patch!

10 Badges: Win a TLC water bottle (that you could add your stickers to!)

15 Badges: Win a TLC Prize Pack and as a special prize, if your family is a TLC member then you win a special tour at any public TLC Nature Preserve for you and 5 of your friends or family!

As an added bonus, we have started making all of our badges into collectible stickers! When you enroll and complete your first badge, we will send you a TLC Sticker Collection Book and your sticker. After that, we will mail your stickers every three badges that you complete. If you don’t want to wait that long, we will also periodically have pick-up locations that you can go to and receive your stickers.

This challenge is open to everyone, but the activities provided best are suited for ages K-5. You can enroll in the Triangle Explorer Challenge at any time.
