QR Code Scavenger Hunt

November Scavenger Hunt

Asbury Woods has a new QR code puzzle to solve!  Find the QR code plaques along the trails using the map, collect the clue from each plaque, and solve the puzzle.

Winter is on its way and the animals of Asbury Woods are ready for it.  Discover how each of the animals has prepared itself for the cold and snowy winter season.  The information on each plaque will help lead you to determining if the animal has prepared to migrate (leave an area for the winter due to lack of available food and water), hibernate (fall into a deep sleep and not wake until spring), find shelter and go dormant (store food in or near their shelter and sleep for most of the winter, but wake to eat when hungry), or stay active (remain active in their habitat as they still have the food, water, shelter, and space they need regardless of season).

Each correct winter survival strategy on the nine plaques correspond with a letter that fits into the nine letter puzzle answer.  Clue 1 provides the first letter of the answer, clue 2 the second, and on until clue 9.

Puzzle

As animals prepare for the winter season they know that the temperatures will lower, food and water will become scarcer, and shelter from the weather will be important.  One strategy animals use to survive the winter is hibernation, a deep sleep where the animal does not wake.  Reptiles, like turtles and snakes, do not hibernate while they are tucked safely underground in burrows or buried in mud.  Discover the scientific word for the strategy reptiles use to survive the winter by solving the QR code puzzle!
