Beginning on Monday, July 13, this entirely family-friendly hunt will be available during the week leading up to Lake Superior Day. Scavenger hunt challenges will be highlighted throughout the week. Follow the Lake Superior Reserve’s Facebook Page for clues and photos from other scavenger hunt participants. Participants can download the scavenger hunt with instructions for participation or pick up a copy at the Lake Superior Estuarium, Super One Foods on Oakes Street, or at the Yellowjacket Union on the UW-Superior campus. At each of these locations there will be a bin with a Lake Superior Day poster on it that will contain copies of the scavenger hunt. This wide ranging scavenger hunt will take participants all over town, visiting Superior’s famous landmarks and beautiful places.

On Sunday, July 19th, 2:00–4:00 p.m. scavenger hunt participants can submit their completed scavenger hunt at the Lake Superior Estuarium (3 Marina Drive, Barker's Island).

History of lake superior day

Lake Superior Day was started in the early 1990s to highlight the importance of this great water body to the basin’s environment and economy. This year’s event is coordinated by the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve operated by the University of Wisconsin–Madison Division of Extension in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Reserve encompasses over 16,000 acres along the St. Louis River freshwater estuary. Come enjoy the festivities in appreciation of the lake!

Lake Superior is the cleanest, coldest, and clearest of the Great Lakes. The largest lake by surface area in the world, it fuels our local shipping, commercial fishing, and recreational industries while providing clean drinking water. Every day, each of the 600,000 human residents of the Lake Superior basin use water from the lake for drinking, home use, industrial use, or recreation. The lake is essential for countless fish, birds, animals, and plants.
