PEEC Virtual Scavenger Hunt Series

With the support of the Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River (AWE), PEEC is hosting a six-week scavenger hunt throughout the region. Every Monday, beginning June 22, PEEC will post a themed list of different plants or animals to our social media pages. Participants take a photo of each organism on the list and submit the photos to PEEC for a chance to win some fun prizes!

 How to participate:

1.   Like us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see updates every Monday on the scavenger hunt theme for the week.

2.   Get outside and take photos of the plants and animals of the week! Signs of specific animal activity are acceptable in place of elusive creatures.

3.   Submit your photos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 5pm the following Sunday and complete this quick Scavenger Hunt Questionnaire to be entered to win.

4.   Submissions will be reviewed for accuracy and the participant or team with the most correct submissions will win either a $20 voucher for a PEEC public program or a PEEC water bottle and T-shirt.

 

There will be a drawing every week which means multiple chances to win! Spend the summer enjoying the great outdoors with us!

The Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) offers its strong support for efforts to end racism and prejudice in our society. PEEC always has, and always will be, committed to addressing inequality through our mission of providing equitable environmental education experiences to all, but most especially to the thousands of young people who do not have ready access to the natural world. As we reflect on current events, and challenge ourselves to continue to make a positive impact, we remain committed to listening to the needs of the communities we serve and educate. Only by coming together, and providing all visitors meaningful opportunities for shared experiences, can we achieve a lasting, positive impact on each other and the environment.
