Duluth Scavenger Hunt Aims to Highlight Importance of Lake Superior
Here's a unique way to see the city of Duluth and hopefully win some prizes! In conjunction with Lake Superior Days, the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program (MLSCP) is holding the first Superior Scavenge: Follow the Flow! scavenger hunt to highlight the significance of Lake Superior and its watershed. The scavenger hunt will take place from July 13 – 20, 2014, within the city limits of Duluth.
Clues will carry messages of human uses, impacts, and natural features of Lake Superior and the watershed and will be posted on Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program and Lake Superior Day/s Facebook pages, as well as the MLSCP website. Participants earn one entry into the prize drawing for each submittal.
“The scavenger hunt is a fun way for families to engage kids in active play and problem-solving, while learning about the vital role of Lake Superior in our lives,” said project manager Julie McDonnell. “This scavenger hunt has been developed and supported by a collaboration of organizations and businesses who understand the importance of this lake - not only as a source of drinking water, but also recreation and a way of life to more than 600,000 people.”
Prizes, including a grand prize package and many prizes from local businesses, will be awarded at the Lake Superior Day celebration in Canal Park. Official rules are posted at: www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.
Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program provides technical assistance, consultation and training at no cost to organizations performing projects benefiting Minnesota’s Lake Superior coastal area. The program manages an annual grant budget of approximately $400,000 to assist communities and organizations in preserving, protecting, and restoring coastal resources in the MLSCP service area.
