The hunt will begin on March 20 and will run through April 10

North Florida Land Trust is inviting everyone to join in on the Spring Scavenger Hunt at Bogey Creek Preserve. Starting on March 20, the first day of spring, participants can visit Bogey Creek Preserve to hunt for and photograph a variety of plant and wildlife species found in the preserve for a chance to win some NFLT prizes.

Participants can visit Bogey Creek Preserve anytime between March 20 and April 10 to locate the 12 items on the scavenger hunt list. The required items will be posted on the backside of the kiosk. There will also be a QR code that will provide further directions and some information on each of the items to spot.

“All you need to participate is a phone or camera and an excitement for exploring the outdoors,” said Jim McCarthy, president of NFLT. “It is a great way for friends, families and individuals to get to know the natural habitats that makeup Bogey Creek Preserve. We hope everyone enjoys their visit.”

Once participants have found and photographed the required items, they should submit them to aputillo@nflt.org with the subject line “Spring 2021 Scavenger Hunt.” NFLT also encourages visitors to post their photos on social media and tag NFLT at #bogeycreekpreserve or #northfloridawild to be featured on NFLT’s social media pages. Each person who completes the hunt will be entered into a raffle. The winners will be announced on Monday, April 12.

Bogey Creek Preserve is located at approximately 5500 Cedar Point Road in North Jacksonville and is open daily from sunrise to sunset. The preserve showcases cypress swamps, coastal forests and salt marsh that supports a wide variety of wildlife and protects nearly one mile of critical marsh front on Clapboard and Bogey creeks. It is one of seven parks in the 7 Creeks Recreation Area which has more than 30 miles of trails along seven creeks in North Jacksonville.
