Mystery Make-A-Long

Live in Green

Scavenger Hunt

Welcome to the Live in Green Challenge!

Are you ready to rise to the challenge? Living with nature in mind doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, we are releasing four, easy weekly challenges that you can do to appreciate and connect with nature! New prompts drop Fridays at 10 am for four weeks and ends at midnight the following Wednesday. Each challenge is designed to help your brain take a step back to really think about how your daily interactions impact the natural world around you. If self-reflection isn’t your thing, then that’s okay! Being outside, or participating in an activity that’s nature-related is just as good.

Share your photos with us by commenting your photoon the social media post. You will automatically be entered to win some pretty sweet gifts! If there are no winners for the week, the prizes will be awarded to participants during the next week’s challenge. Only one entry per person, per challenge. Winners are allowed, and encouraged, to participate in the next weeks’ challenge. Only residents with a Delaware Address will be able to receive prizes. Winners will be selected at random.

Week 1: April 24, 2020

Prize: $50 gift card to Gateway Garden Center

Happy Arbor Day! Today marks the 148th anniversary of Arbor Day, and a lot has changed since the first celebration. To honor this special occasion, we ask you to take a pic of your favorite tree, or a tree in your neighborhood. Post it to social media and tag us and the Arbor Day Foundation with hashtags #ArborDayAtHome and #EarthandArborWilm. They’ll plant a tree in your honor, and we’ll give 5 lucky Delawareans a $50 giftcard to
Gateway Garden Center in Hockessin, DE. Our challenge ends at midnight on the 28th, so make sure you get your post in before then!

Week 2: May 1, 2020

Prize: $50 gift certificate to Bright Spot Farms.

Happy spring!
Unleash your inner nature investigator and find a spot outside to watch the natural world unfold. Nature works in mysterious ways and can awe and inspire us to be better observers and thinkers. One way we can improve those skills and connect with nature better is to keep a nature journal.
We invite you to complete a nature journal entry as this weeks’ challenge. You can complete as many entries as you like, but comment with a photo of your entry on our facebook or twitter, or DM a photo on instagram! You must submit a photo in order to enter for the random drawing.
