About Agents of Discovery:

The USDA Forest Service and FIND Outdoors introduce this new augmented reality game by Agents of Discovery. Specifically designed for the Cradle’s 1.3 mile paved Forest Festival Trail with Agent Beaver as your guide, children are asked questions challenging their knowledge about the natural world. These challenges were created by Cradle of Forestry educators and align with N.C. Curriculum Standards for 2nd-6th grade.

Agents of Discovery missions can be found across the country on private and public land sites. Look for a site on your next adventure!

How to Play:

  1. Download the free app onto your mobile device.
  2. Under Missions search for “Cradle of Forestry in America” and download mission prior to visiting the Cradle.
  3. Make sure GPS is turned on and play!
