Forest Quest Scavenger Hunt 2018

Additional Information

Grab a group of friends, family or coworkers and test your Forest Preserve and local nature knowledge! If you’re up for the challenge, you’ll be hiking, talking to forest preserve staff, looking for clues and working as a team to answer about 75 questions related to Forest Preserves of Winnebago County and local flora and fauna. The team with the most points wins a fabulous grand prize! Second and third place prizes will also be awarded.

The hunt will take you to several forest preserve locations throughout the county, some spots you’ll be able to reach by car; others will require venturing down a trail. Some questions require research to answer and others may require you to solve a riddle. As it is illegal to remove items from the preserves, one digital camera with a flash memory card will be required per team. Questions are awarded point values based on level of difficulty. The team with the most points will get prizes, but everybody wins!

You may assemble your team with anywhere from two to six members. The Forest Quest Scavenger Hunt will take place over a 25-hour period with teams receiving their hunt questions via e-mail by 3:30 p.m. on Friday, September 21st and are due back at Severson Dells Nature Center no later than 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 22nd with your answers. Enjoy live music while scoring takes place. Celebrate your team’s success at the post-race party!

All proceeds from the Forest Quest Scavenger Hunt benefit Nature Education programs at Severson Dells Nature Center and Volunteer Education programs to enhance habitat restoration throughout all 42 Forest Preserves of Winnebago County.
