Residents are encouraged to bring their families and enjoy a scavenger hunt and family lime hosted by the National Conservation Commission (NCC), on Saturday, September 24, at the Farley Hill National Park, from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Admission is free.
Under the theme: Know Your Trees, the event will feature six challenges or clues which will be embedded in QR codes and affixed at various points within the park. Persons interested in the competition may register by visiting the NCC’s Instagram page.
Registered groups of four must find and scan each marker using a smartphone and follow the instructions to complete the required tasks. The first three teams to fulfil all activities, based on the competition’s guidelines, have a chance to win prizes in the first, second and third place categories.
The first-place winner will receive $1,600 plus a handset, while the second- place winner can walk away with $1,200. The third-place winner will cop $800.
During the scavenger hunt and until 6:00 p.m., participants and members of the public will be able to enjoy the venue to picnic and lime with friends and family, while being entertained by a DJ. The event will also feature a booth for health checks, line dancing and a designated area for vendors, and specially invited exhibitors.
