Learn all about nature while you search for little boxes hidden in Preservation Park District parks. You’ll register at any Delaware County library, and receive a booklet containing all the clues, information about how to Letterbox, and rules about the parks. Inside each box is a stamp for your booklet, and a fun activity to do in the park.
Families can search for the boxes on their own time – whenever the parks are open, 8 a.m.-sunset, rain or shine. You have all summer to visit the parks.
The dates for Summer Letterbox Adventure 2013 are June 8 – August 12,and boxes are hidden in seven parks. Three of the parks have an extra letterbox, which you will discover when you find the first one. You do not need to find the second box to complete the Letterbox Adventure in a particular park.
At the end of the journey, letterbox seekers who have found at least five of the boxes and stamped their booklets are entered into a drawing for prizes. Those who find all seven get an extra chance to win!
