Great Swamp Scavenger Hunt

Calling all would-be explorers, adventurers, and buccaneers! The Great Swamp Scavenger Hunt is back for another year of outdoor fun!

Think you know a thing or two about New Jersey's Great Swamp? Then it's time to test your powers of navigation and observation to find out.

Begin the Scavenger Hunt just after 10 a.m. by checking in at GSWA’s Home Base under the pavilion at the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge’s Helen C. Fenske Visitor Center. (The Visitor Center is located just inside the Lee's Hill Road park entrance at 32 Pleasant Plains Road in Harding Township, NJ.)

We will provide you with a route to travel, questions to answer, and a list of treasures to find throughout the 55-square-mile Great Swamp Watershed region. It's your job to navigate to each treasure site, seek answers to the questions and riddles provided, and then return to Home Base with all your spoils.

Remember to hurry back to 32 Pleasant Plains Road at 3 p.m. because your day of pilfering booty will earn you several chances to win some special prizes at our Scavenger's Tricky Tray!

A free cookout waits for all who participate, so don’t forget your barbecue enthusiasm. We love it when our guests participate in the picnic! Feel free to bring along a covered side dish (to share or not). We’ll supply the burgers, dogs, and drinks. Registration required. Register online at GreatSwamp.org or by calling 973-538-3500.
