2024 Explore & Seek is June 1st through 30th!

River Action's 5th Annual Explore & Seek Scavenger Hunt (formerly Ride & Seek) is an event for families and explorers of all ages. During the entire month of June, participants will seek the answers to environmental, conservation, and historical clues. Explore & Seek gets our community outdoors and connected to nature, bringing awareness and awe to local Wild Places and conservation areas. Registrants receive an Explorer Kit, including a tie-dye drawstring bag, clue map, field notebook, pen, compass carabiner, and coupons to local businesses to redeem near each clue location. Prizes are given to those who answer the most clues correctly. “Junior Explorer” certificates and ball caps are given to children under 12 who visit a minimum of 5 locations and correctly answer the clues. See below for details, rules, and FAQs.
