Weekly Challenge #1 – Flower Finding

Just because we’re stuck at home doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! The Dishman Hills Conservancy is presenting a weekly challenge series that encourages people to get outside for fun activities while practicing social distancing. Every week, we will introduce a new challenge involving scavenger hunts, photo competitions, nature education activities, and much more! At the end of every week, we will announce a winner and feature their photo(s) on our social media pages. The DHC is at our core a community organization, and we hope to make this difficult time a little more fun and engaging for everyone.

Each new Weekly Challenge will be posted here every Monday morning. To enter, simply read and follow the instructions that are posted along with any supplemental materials attached to the post. Take photos along the way, and submit a picture of the completed challenge to us. You can submit photos by sending us a direct message on Facebook, tagging us in your Facebook or Instagram post with @DishmanHillsConservancy, or by emailing Elijah Johnson, Communications Director, at Elijah@DishmanHills.org. Each unique challenge might have slightly different rules for entering – check back here for updates!
