You have officially been challenged to complete a scavenger hunt in honor of Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust celebrating a special milestone; DNRT is turning 50 years old. DNRT may be “over the hill,” but the organization wants to send you over the hill, through the woods, and down the beautiful paths that make DNRT what it is today.

DNRT invites you to sign up for the Discover DNRT Scavenger Hunt HERE. Then you can head out to find and photograph 50 of the 70 items listed on the Discover DNRT Scavenger Hunt checklist.

“Each entrant will receive a DNRT Guide to Outdoor Recreation in Dartmouth, which is a $15 value,” said Development and Outreach Specialist, Kendra Murray. “This contains over 70 full-color pages featuring all of DNRT’s reserves and trail maps, as well as other non-profit, state, and townlands.”

Those who successfully take and submit photos of 50 items will win an exclusive DNRT canvas boat tote bag, which is not available for sale elsewhere. Registration is $25 per entrant* and the contest will end on October 31, 2021.

“This is a great activity for individuals, families, and friends,” said Murray. “Get outdoors and enjoy the lovely summer weather while discovering new places and exploring old favorites.”

All proceeds from this scavenger hunt will go towards supporting land conservation in Dartmouth. For more information and to sign up, please click HERE.

*Please note that an “entrant” can be an individual, couple, family, or team, but each entrant will receive only one Guide and one tote bag. If each individual in a group wants their own Guide and tote bag, they must register (and submit photos) separately.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
