A Pollinator Week Treasure Hunt will take place 9 a.m.-5 p.m.., June 17-23.

The rules for the hunt and five clues will be posted to www.facebook.com/jcparkstn, www.twitter.com@jcparkstn and www.instagram.com/jcparkstn at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 17.

Participants must solve the five pollinator-themed clues, each hidden in a different City park and specifically related to the flora and fauna in that park, that leads them to the “treasures” — a piece of paper with a code word on it.

Participants should write down the code words along with the corresponding clue numbers but leave the original code word in place.

Completed lists should be turned in to Memorial Park Community Center by 9 p.m.  Monday, June 24 for a chance to win one of three prizes.  

All ages are welcome to participate in the Pollinator Week Treasure Hunt. There is no cost or registration for this event.  

For more information, call John Griggs at 423-434-5757.
