Quest 65: A River Adventure

In 2017, while CRC celebrated 65 years of working for our rivers, we created a challenge game to highlight all the wonderful things that our rivers offer us. From June 15 through October 15, 2017 we challenged you to join us for Quest 65: A River Adventure, an interactive, smartphone-based scavenger hunt spanning the entire length of our great watershed — and you did!

With an impressive list of 65+ things to find, see and do from the source of our great river at the Connecticut Lakes all the way down to the mouth of the river at Long Island Sound, dozens of players (or Questers) embarked on their own river adventures. They visited river museums and historic sites; traveled by river ferry, river boat or riverside train; saw beautiful river art and bridges; explored the rare riverfront castle and so much more!

Their mission was to earn points — aiming for 65, to honor CRC’s legacy — taking a selfie at each adventure along the way. View the full Quest65 gallery here.

And the winners are …
