Shelter-In-Place Fun

Citywide Scavenger Hunt

The Hunt event starts on Monday, May 25th and ends on Friday, May 29th. To participate, simply use the clues available each day to find the pieces of the puzzle to solve throughout Woodland. Complete the scavenger hunt by submitting all photos and solving the puzzle will admit participants into a drawing for prizes. All are invited to participate in the Scavenger Hunt.

Scavenger Hunt details and rules:

  • There are two scavenger hunts located within Woodland city limits
  • 95776 Hunt (clue locations are all to the east of East Street)
  • 95695 Hunt (clue locations are all to the west of East Street)
  • Each hunt will have different clues to different destinations. The hunts are separate and DO NOT rely upon one another to solve the puzzle. You only have to complete one of the hunts to solve the puzzle.
  • Each day during the week of May 25-29 clues will be posted to the website, and on our Woodland Community Services “Parks and Rec.” Facebook page.  
  • Using the clues provided, participants travel to designated locations and “collect” each day’s piece to the puzzle using their phone/camera. Please take a photo of the puzzle piece you found.
  • Puzzle pieces will be defined at a location with a COW (City of Woodland) close by.
  • Collect, submit, and title your submission with the puzzle’s answer. After the last clues are provided on Friday, May 29th submit your puzzle answer through Facebook Messenger to WoodlandRec or email
  • Submission of your puzzle answer enters you into a drawing for prizes.
