ArlinGnomes is our first-ever self-guided scavenger hunt at the trail at Long Branch Nature Center from April 24-May 24. Before you head out on the trail in search of our gnomes, read the information below to prepare for your adventure.
Our friend Felix the Fox needs your help! He sent the message below with your task for the scavenger hunt.
Hi, I’m Felix the Fox! I walk along this trail every day and today something amazing happened! Out of nowhere a tiny gnome ran across my path. He stopped right in front of me and gave me a strange message before running off…Can you help me?
Get an ArlinGnomes sneak peek with this video of Felix’s visit.
