huntCLICK HERE for a Video Introduction

ReGreen Springfield, the Springfield Department of Health and Human Services, the Greening the Gateway Cities Program and the US Forest Service have created (4) environmentally based ‘scavenger hunts’ in the city, for folks of all ages. These ‘scavenger hunts’ are located in natural spaces across Springfield. The idea is to go out, explore the great outdoors and learn a bit about the natural world at the same time. For more information, call 413-523-0014.
