Grab your fedora intrepid explorers because Lancaster Conservancy and Uncharted Lancaster have partnered to create two brand new adventures—Climbers Run Adventure and Green Infrastructure Adventure—for this year’s Water Week, which runs August 7-15.
Climbers Run Adventure
Distance: Approximately two miles round trip.
What to bring: An internet-connected device with GPS, something to write with and on as you decipher the clues, and appropriate footwear. There’s definitely potential for wet feet!
How does this adventure work?
Lace up your shoes, pack a picnic lunch, and get ready to explore Climbers Run Nature Center. While on your hike, closely examine the text at each stop to find the hidden clue to decipher a 5 letter code to unlock the hidden treasure at the end of your adventure!
Please practice social distancing by maintaining 6 feet from other preserve visitors while you are on your adventure. Hand sanitizer is recommended, but not provided, after “unlocking” the treasure cache.
What is Water Week?
Leading the way to clean water by protecting over 6,000 acres of wild lands, the Lancaster Conservancy created Lancaster Water Week to connect us all to clean water. Lancaster’s 1,400 miles of streams and rivers drive local economic and agricultural growth. They are a place of recreation and the source of our drinking water. Water Connects Us All!

About the Organizations
Uncharted Lancaster is a local history website that creates unique self-guided adventures to encourage people to get outside and explore the rich history and beauty of Lancaster County and surrounding areas.
The Lancaster Conservancy was founded in 1969 by anglers, hunters, farmers and naturalists who witnessed the rapid development and loss of lands. Today the Lancaster Conservancy manages 47 nature preserves and protects over 7,000 acres in Lancaster and York Counties. The nature preserves are managed to create habitat for animals, to protect plants and trees, and to provide public access to nature 365 days of the year from sunrise to sunset.
