Medina County Park District events
MEDINA COUNTY — The Medina County Park District is offering the Medina County Park’s Natural History Mystery Quest through Oct. 31. Back by popular demand, the park district is hosting a new geocaching/letterboxing series, “Natural History Mystery Quest,” which provides an opportunity for participants to get out and explore the parks at their leisure. Suitable for all ages and experience levels, the only requirement is an enthusiastic sense of adventure and an ability to hike the trails, according to park district officials. The Quest consists of six boxes hidden in different Medina County parks. Each box is listed with coordinates so it may be found easily with a GPS, but written clues for non-GPS users also are available. Completion of the Quest requires finding all six boxes, obtaining a sticker from each and filling in a game card. When all six stickers have been collected, completed game cards can be taken to the front desk at the Wolf Creek Environmental Center, 6100 Ridge Road in Sharon Township, to collect a token prize. Boxes will remain in place until Oct. 31, and token prizes will be available until Nov. 14. For more detailed information about the Quest and to obtain a game card, go to www.medi nacountyparks.com.
