INFORMATION FOR KIDS & PARENTS OF PARKER COLORADO
Warmer days are coming to Colorado. Now is the perfect time to plan new experiences with your family by participating in the Decode Douglas County Outdoors exploration game. Join Douglas County and Douglas Land Conservancy on a treasure hunt through several spectacular, scenic open spaces and parks throughout the County.
To get started, pick up a decoder booklet at any of these locations or print your own. Read the rules, learn how to play and find your starting point.
The adventure will lead you to eight Douglas County Open Spaces or Parks where you’ll discover a wooden post with a passport stamp on top containing a numeric clue. Use a crayon or pencil to create a rubbing of the clue that will lead you to the next location.
Once you’ve collected eight stamp rubbings, you’ve cracked the code! Use the numbers you’ve found to unlock the Decode Douglas County Outdoors treasure chest – you’ll win a prize and be entered into the grand prize drawing in December.
Once you’ve completed the game, keep exploring! More than 46% of Douglas County is public or protected land. Learn more about the County’s efforts to protect natural resources and historic assets.
