Wetlands Scavenger Hunt

March 20th - April 3rd

In collaboration with the Cumberland Community Forest Society, DV8 Education is offering the community yet another engaging scavenger hunt. The focus of this scavenger hunt is wetlands and navigation skill building. Also included is a mystery sentence to decipher. The intention behind these scavenger hunts is to provide families with fun and meaningful outdoor activities that serve to deepen one's idea of place. As we learn more about our forest and community, we hope to foster a great love for our ecological paradise and the importance of engaging actively as stewards.

The scavenger hunt is appropriate for all ages. You and your family can head out into the forest to locate as many of the hidden eight boxes as you'd like.  The course will be out for the duration of Spring Break (March 20th - April 3rd).
