What is The Trustees Quest:

The Trustees Quest is a self-guided, outdoor scavenger hunt for families with school-aged kids and anyone with an adventurous spirit. Navigate through five Trustees properties with fun clues, discovering cool places and activities along the way. Find the special location at each of the five sites and scan a QR code to earn a digital badge. Scanning the QR code will also give you more to explore at that site.

Whether it’s April school vacation week, a fun spring weekend, or even time after school or work as the days lengthen, the Trustees Quest will get kids and adults alike excited about exploring outdoors, while they learn about the amazing nature of Massachusetts.
