Solano County’s Office of Education wants to see students and their families out and about this summer and has created a new, interactive game to help make it happen.
The Solano Outdoor Explorer Quest has begun at Lagoon Valley Park and will run through the summer and into the fall. It is part treasure hunt and part Geocaching, offering explorers and their families outdoor adventure utilizing smartphones and tablets.
Hidden QR codes have been placed throughout the park, referred to as Questcaches. Each Questcache leads to the discovery of native plants and animals living in the area through videos, and a secret Questcache log to record discoveries.
