RELEASE — Everyone is invited to join the Friends of The Cataraqui Trail and Cataraqui Conservation on a family-friendly fundraising Quest. Participants can choose to bike or hike the Cataraqui Trail and find clues to help fill out their Quest passport, with a cool prize awaiting those that complete the task. The Cataraqui Trail Quest starts May 20 and runs until Sept. 12, 2022.
This is a great way to get outside, enjoy the fresh air, and explore parts of the Cataraqui Region you may never have visited before.
Those choosing to participate in the Cat Trail Quest fundraiser are asked to register in advance. After you complete your registration, you will get an email with a PDF download of your passport. Follow the clues in the passport, fill in the activities, then go back to the website, click on the ‘complete quest’ button and answer the question correctly to complete the hunt.
Everyone who completes the quest by answering the questions correctly and returned the survey by Oct. 14, 2022 will receive a prize. There are different levels of difficulty for different age groups.
Children – once you register and download your passport, bike or hike the Trail and find clues that match your book. Complete the passport by colouring in what you see on the trail and also try the fun word search. You will be given hints (trail crossroads) and the clue is within 3 km of the crossroad. Once you complete your passport, go back to the website, click on ‘complete quest’ button, then answer the question correctly to complete the quest.
Tweens, Teens and Adults – once you register and download your passport, bike or hike the Trail and find the clues that match your book.
