Scout Scavenger Hunt (click here for handbook)

Scout is hosting a summer long scavenger hunt appropriately named “Scout Scavenger Hunt.” Scout encourages patrons to look for clues and to answer questions, located in the guide book, taking patrons to an estimated 12 parks throughout the District.

Using the guide book community members will learn about foxes in the state of Illinois, and why it is important to be friend of the earth and all creatures.

Return the completed guide to the Rec/Admin Center to collect your prize(s). See website for
prize details.

Scout Scavenger Hunt runs May 15 through August 31.
