How does this adventure work?
Grab your bike or a good pair of walking shoes and get ready to explore the incredible green infrastructure projects that are transforming the City of Lancaster. At each green infrastructure location, you will receive a clue to help you find a number hidden on a building, sign, or even a poll nearby! You will need each of those numbers at the end of your adventure to unlock a secret page that will reveal the sixth and final location where the treasure is hidden!
This limited-time urban adventure runs through Saturday, August 15, until 7 pm.
In addition to the exciting treasure, each cache will have a limited supply of extra special Uncharted Lancaster merch. One adventure will have these custom made three-inch patches while the other one will contain these beautiful 1.25″ soft enamel pins. Which cache has which? There’s only one way to find out. First to find, first to keep. One per group, please.
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!
