forest quest scavenger hunt

Forest Quest Scavenger Hunt

September 15 @ 5:00 am – September 16 @ 7:00 pm

A new competitive event coming this fall will inspire participants to explore local forest preserves while supporting nature education. Forest Quest Scavenger Hunt is a 24-hour Event that takes you off the beaten path to discover the wild, weird, and wonderful secrets of the Forest Preserves of Winnebago County.

On Saturday, September 16, 2017 the Forest Quest Scavenger Hunt will invite teams to participate in a 24-hour competitive exploration of Winnebago County’s 42 forest preserves. The purpose of the event is two-fold. One, to raise awareness of our vast system of protected natural areas as people visit various forest preserves. Two, to raise funds for nature education in the forest preserves.

Forest Quest teams will fulfill various challenges in the preserves to accumulate points and qualify to win prizes. First, second, and third place prize packages will be awarded to the teams accumulating the most points by fulfilling the most scavenger hunt activities. Prize package values will range from $200 – $400 and will include sought after items such as Ice Hogs tickets, Hydroflask water bottles, golf gift certificates, local restaurant and brewery gift certificates, and locally hand crafted apparel.

Completion of the 24-hour scavenger hunt will be celebrated at a post-event party at Severson Dells Nature Center on Saturday, September 16th at 4:00 pm where participants can enjoy food, drinks, music by Kraig Kenning and sharing of their day’s adventures.
