Superior Community Scavenger Hunt

Download scavenger hunt

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). All participants will be entered into a raffle for superior prizes donated by Earth Rider, North Shore SUP, Epicurean, and Trailfitters.
