This event is free and open to everyone, with no registration required. To participate, simply take photos of the items listed on the scavenger hunt list with your phone or digital camera and upload them to the Hendricks County Parks Facebook page. Then encourage your friends to vote by “liking” your photos. The images with the most “likes” will win great prizes! Official rules will be posted on the Hendricks County Parks website as well as the Facebook page when the event gets closer.
The scavenger hunt is a great opportunity to showcase the things you love most about McCloud Nature Park, Sodalis Nature Park, and the Vandalia Trail, which are all great (and free!) outdoor spaces here in Hendricks County.
A digital scavenger hunt is a great way to explore Hendricks County, and this is a great activity to complete solo, as a family, or with a small group of friends.
