Quest 2018: 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. To that end, we created Quest65, an interactive smartphone-based scavenger hunt that invited participants to explore the entire length of our great watershed.

Back by popular demand, our revamped Quest2018 will take you on a new river adventure with your health and well-being in mind. We’re creating a unique set of clues to get you moving and grooving in and around your rivers. You can earn points by taking a selfie at each adventure along the way.

This is a choose-your-own style adventure. It’s up to you when to embark on your adventure. It’s up to you how many stops your adventure will include. Just keep in mind that the more items you check off the Quest2018 list, the more likely you’ll be to win a great prize at the end!

But the real prize is the wonderful experiences you’ll have all summer long with your friends and family enjoying our beautiful rivers. Have fun!
