On June 13th as part of the 8th Annual National Get Outdoors Day, Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation (TMPF) is hosting “Quail Quest: Truckee Meadows Treasure Hunt,” an all-day photo scavenger hunt through Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County parks, trails, and open spaces! It will be followed by a picnic and award ceremony in Idlewild Park (50 Cowan Drive). The Hunt is from 8am – 5pm and the picnic and award ceremony is from 5pm – 8pm. There will be prizes from local companies, free beverages, and local food trucks (Pho Real and Mount Mogrit Gourmet)! All ages are encouraged to participate – this event is great for families, adults, co-workers, friends, etc!!
Teams will receive clues at the TMPF office at 8am for the more than 200 parks in the Truckee Meadows. Teams have to take pictures (the entire team minus the photographer – unless you prefer selfies!) and post to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter to accrue as many points as possible (Clues can also be sent via email or on a digital camera). Some clues will be easy and some will be difficult! Lesser known parks and hidden gems will be highlighted – how well do you know all the parks in the area? Start thinking of your Quail Quest strategy now!
Registration is $50 per team of 5 (additional members $10/each) and day-of registration is $60. However, if you share this event on your social media or with your email list, we can provide your staff, members, and volunteers with a 20% discount code!
