Crawford Park Native Bird Treasure Hunt

← Back to Departments Overview

The Crawford Hunt Native Bird Treasure Hunt will take place October 3 – 17, 2020.

This event is being hosted by The Town of Rye Sustainability Committee in partnership with Blind Brook High School’s Roots & Shoots club, a local chapter of acclaimed conservationist Jane Goodall’s organization of the same name. The goal of the event is to raise awareness of nature-friendly, sustainable practices, while getting people to enjoy nature in their own community.

All clues, hand-painted birds, and information sheets containing environmentally conscious tips and action items, were conceived and designed by the Roots & Shoots club members. The students want to educate Town residents on issues pertaining to the continued health of native birds and flora, while providing tips on how to nurture nature in their own backyards, and in the wider world.

At the end of a successful treasure hunt, submit an entry, with creative photos, for a chance to win a sustainable prize.

Clue Sheets

Clue sheets will be available at the Crawford Park Pavilion, on the Town of Rye’s Facebook page (@TownofRyeNY). Follow @BBHS.rootsandshoots and @TownofRyeNY on Instagram.
