4th Annual GooseChase
Did you know that April 22, 2020 is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day? Come and celebrate at the 4th annual GooseChase at Lake Conestee Nature Park! This event will raise funds for the education programs at the park. Grab your friends and family and create a team and join them for this fun and exciting event that combines the tried and true scavenger hunt with smartphone technology for a customized adventure in the park.
How to Play - Form a team of 2-5 people. Designate one person as the team captain and download the GooseChase app onto their smartphone. Create a team name and register your account using that team name. The day of the event they will unlock access to the game.
To complete a mission you will select it from the list in the app and follow the instructions to receive the allotted points. There will be several community partners like Frugal Backpacker, Trees Upstate, Sustaining Way, and Greenville Soil and Water Conservation district that will be leading some of the missions. So be ready to interact with other organizations from around Greenville that are invested in conservation and preserving LCNP! To complete a mission you may be asked to text in the answer, take a picture, or include a video. Your team will get 3 hours to complete as many missions as possible!
You will be able to track your progress against the other teams to see if you need to step up your game to take the lead! All submissions will be reviewed by the park staff. You might get bonus points for submissions that are extra impressive or lose points for not completing the task or following the rules. The team with the most points at the end wins!
This year there will be two brackets! If you have any children under the age of 16 on your team you can sign up for the Family bracket. All other teams will sign up for the competitive bracket. Top 3 teams in each bracket will receive prizes.
