Introduction What is Nature Quest? Nature Quest is a treasure hunt! You use clues in this passport to find treasure boxes hidden at each of Columbia Land Conservancy’s nine Public Conservation Areas. The clues will lead you through amazing wildlife habitats and across interesting historical and natural features. At the end of each quest there is a waterproof box that contains a special stamp, an ink pad, and a logbook. Use the stamp to mark your passport, then sign or stamp the logbook. This passport contains clues for all nine Nature Quests. Quests can also be downloaded at naturequest. Prize Rules Complete all nine quests for a prize ◊ Complete all 9 Nature Quests by September 30, 2011 ◊ Bring your stamped passport to the Columbia Land Conservancy office at 49 Main St. in Chatham to claim your prize! Call 518.392.5252 for hours. Good Tips for your Nature Quests! ◊ Allow one and half hours for the Round Ball quest and one hour for the other quests. ◊ Several of the quests have steep inclines and some trails will be muddy after hard rains. Please be careful. ◊ Sign-in at the entrance to the public conservatoin area & pick up a trail map. ◊ Carry an extra ink pad & pen with you. ◊ Bring your own special stamp from home so you can stamp our logbook. ◊ Never litter and always respect the site and the environment. ◊ The treasure box will be hidden close to the trail, but out of view from the casual observer…so look closely! ◊ When you find the treasure box, stamp your passport. Then sign the logbook or stamp it with your own stamp from home. ◊ Always tightly reclose the box and hide it back where you found it. ◊ Do not dig, remove native vegetation, disturb natural rock formations, or interfere with animals and their habitats. ◊ Remember… safety first! Watch out for poison ivy, ticks, stinging insects, and bad weather. Snakes and spiders sometimes like the places were the boxes are hidden. ◊ Always check for ticks when finished hiking for the day. ◊ Bring a snack & some water. You may get hungry or thirsty! ◊ And lastly, have fun! Introduction 2 3
