EVENTS: Green Rush Scavenger Hunt (Washington, DC)

We don't usually shill for non-SSC events, but this one looks too fun to pass up!  If you're going to be in the DC area on April 17th, why not check it out?

In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, Live Green is hosting an action-packed, fun-filled scavenger hunt where teams will race against the clock to explore DC's most eco-friendly spots and compete for the chance to win $1,000 Grand Prize!  The Green Rush scavenger hunt will kick-off at the Green in the Circle Festival in Dupont Circle with great performers, speakers and green exhibitors.  And the Green Rush concludes at The Reef for an after party with delicious food, raffle prizes and great entertainment!  

Here's what you do:

  • First, gather 2 - 5 friends and create a team
  • Next, sign up online as individuals, but include your team name so they know how to group you.  
  • Then, on Saturday April 17th, meet at 1pm near the fountain in Dupont Circle for the Green in the Circle kick-off festival. Check-in with your team at the Live Green table.  
  • And finally, the Green Rush starts at 2:30pm at the festival!
