Introducing Topanga's First Ever Community Scavenger Hunt
Start the year off right and get outside in Topanga!
The Topanga Community Center and Topanga Enrichment Programs at Topanga Elementary Charter School are teaming up to get you OUTSIDE in 2021. We’ve highlighted things to do and places to go in Topanga this month with your mobile phone and some simple tasks. In order to be entered to win one of our 3 prizes, all you have to do is complete 10 of the 15 challenges listed below and upload your photos with this Google Form.
You CANNOT double up scavenger hunt tasks in a single photo. For example, please do not go barefoot and enter the Topanga State Park, this will only count for ONE of the hunt challenges!
We’re giving away 3 fun prizes to lucky winners who complete at least 10 tasks and send in their selfies before February 1. Winners will be chosen at random from all of the qualifying entries.
What could you win?
- A one-year family membership to the TCC (or extension, if you’re already a member)
- Topanga Elementary Charter School gift basket with goodies from the school spirit shack
- 2 TCC water bottles and a $25 gift card to Rocco’s Cucina in the Palisades
Here are your challenges!
Have fun and stay safe out there!
#1 Visit any Topanga business along Topanga Canyon Boulevard
#2 Explore a Cave
There are many natural wonders around our beautiful canyon. Show us a cave.
#3 Enter Topanga State Park somewhere other than Trippet Ranch
The Trippet entrance to Topanga State Park is a popular spot. Show us how a local accesses the State Park through another entrance!
#4 Mail a letter or postcard from the Topanga Post Office.
There may not be a hitching post anymore, but our Topanga Post Office is still a busy hub of Topanga. Mail a letter!
#5 Hug your favorite oak tree and tell us why it’s special
It doesn’t have to be a grandmother oak to hold a special place in your heart. Show us your favorite Topanga oak tree.
#6 Pick up 3 pieces of litter on a Topanga trail
Topanga’s Trash Warriors are busy on Topanga Boulevard, but our trails also need some TLC. Find a few pieces of litter on a trail. Be sure to practice good hygiene after picking up any trash.
#7 Contribute to a Free Little Library
#8 Find a Labyrinth
Always wanted to find one but haven’t taken the time? Now is your chance! There are a few in Topanga already… or make a new one!
#9 Track down a larger than life animal statue or sculpture
Hmmmm. Larger than life animal sculpture? Wonder where we could find one of those.
#10 Find a puddle
#13 Visit the rock outside Topanga Elementary Charter school
Thousands of kids have climbed this rock outside Topanga Elementary school. Now it’s your turn!
#15 Go barefoot because it's Topanga and that's what you do
The dirtier, the better!
