Three new challenges will be posted each Monday, starting June 15th. Your team will have until Sunday, July 12th at midnight to complete all the challenges. The team earning the most points will win a Pelican brand kayak!! Get ready for your summer 2020 outdoor adventure!

If you are having a difficult time finding the locations of our parks, please email Jasper County Conservation Naturalist, Katie Cantu, at

Participants can join the game by following these simple steps:

  2. Create an account with a username & the password of your choice.
  3. Search for and select the Jasper County Conservation Outdoor Summer Adventure game, or search by game code QMGK7Q.
