Would you like to explore Erie County and see some really amazing trees?

Do you love the outdoors and enjoy a challenge?

Join the challenge from the Erie County Master Gardener. Tree Scavenger Hunt 2018

“We have just the quest for you!”

The Penn State Master Gardeners have located 15 trees in our area that are unique in some way. Follow the directions in the handbook to find each one. Everyone that completes the quest will have their name entered in a contest to win a tree. You must find at least 10 trees to enter and there will be 10 winners.

Here is how it works

Follow the clues to find each tree. There will be a numbered sign on each tree. Write down the number and add to your entry form. Please leave the sign with numbers in place for the next scavenger hunter. There will never be any need to dig! All the trees are in areas where the public has access during daylight hours. Keep to established paths. Please no night time or flashlight hunting. Allow yourself plenty of time for each leg of the tree hunt and be prepared for any type of weather. Keep the location of the tree a secret. Respect our beautiful Erie County; and do not litter or start fires. There is no cost to enter.

The tree hunt lasts from May 1 till September 1, 2018.
