In an effort to raise awareness about Granby’s hiking trails and open spaces, the Conservation Commission will be challenging the public to a scavenger hunt event through the fall of this year.

“The Conservation Commission would like to motivate Granby residents to explore our beautiful trails and open spaces,’’ says Commissioner Kent McCord.

The rules are simple—get to the target locations, take a selfie photo, and submit the photos to the Commission along with the date of the visit and the names of Granby residents in attendance.

The event will be an excellent opportunity for families to explore what Granby’s natural landscape has to offer. Five easy-to-find sites will be identified on marked trails at Holcomb Farm, McLean Game Refuge and Granby Land Trust properties. Participants who reach all sites will be awarded a certificate and a small recognition.

Details about the event, including target locations and how to participate, will be released in February on the Conservation Commission website at granby-ct/gov/ and the Granby Recreation and Leisure Services programs page at The Commission hopes the Explore Granby scavenger hunt will help build a stronger appreciation for the beautiful natural resources of our town.
