Residents who are excited for St. Patrick’s Day can celebrate a little earlier this year.
James City County Parks & Recreation is hosting a free scavenger hunt starting Saturday, March 13.
“Leprechauns are on the loose along Greensprings Interpretive Trail, and it’s your chance to strike gold!” according to the James City County Parks & Recreation’s Facebook post. “Track down our Irish friends and then complete the scavenger hunt quiz as you wander past beaver ponds, wetlands and forests.”
The scavenger hunt is free and open to the public. However, those wishing to participate who are younger than 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
Participants can access the quiz by using a smartphone or other handheld device to scan each “pot o’ gold” placed along the trail.
Each correct answer counts as a raffle entry for a prize pack that includes a t-shirt, discounts and “St. Patrick’s Day goodies,” according to the JCC Parks & Rec’s announcement.
The trail is open from sunrise to sunset and parking is available behind the “trailhead” at Jamestown High School, 3751 John Tyler Highway from 8 a.m. to sunset.
Each quiz requires a valid email address in order to be eligible for prizes. For more information, call 757-259-5355.
