Tracking the Thunderbird game makes it return

SILVERDALE — Kitsap County Parks and Recreation is returning the environmental game that helps participants learn about the water cycle.

In “Tracking the Thunderbird,” participants of all ages learn about the water cycle while solving clues that take them to several locations where the mythological Thunderbird has left a “track.”

A kickoff party is set for Jan. 25 at Silverdale Waterfront Park, from 5-6 p.m. Attend the party and receive the first clue a week before it’s released on the website. Free hot chocolate will be provided; reduce waste by bringing your own mug.

New clues will be released on on the first Friday of each month, February through October. This game is ideal for families, schools, Scout groups and others.

Pursuing the Thunder-bird Tracks is a great way to get outside and discover parts of Kitsap County where there are bears, beavers, and osprey nests. Some tracks are located in state-owned parks that require a Discover Pass to enter.
