Want to play a fun wildflower game? Join the Wildflower Bingo Challenge. Download the bingo card and have an adventure.
HOW TO PLAY:
1.) Download the bingo card depicting some of our early, local wildflowers. The goal is to go out into Portola Valley and find the flowers pictured treasure-hunt style. The first person to report back with a completed row, column or diagonal WINS!
BONUS LEVEL *A*: Include all the names of the flowers (how about the Latin name for extra credit?)
Flower names will soon be posted on the town Instagram for the curious or frustrated:
BONUS LEVEL *B*: A fully completed card (WOW!!!)
GET OUT OF THE HOUSE... SAFELY
2.) The flowers may be in your backyard or out in the wilds. We hope beautiful, local PV nature will be the best medicine for "cabin fever," but, by all means, please explore SAFELY. Maintain social distancing during your quest.
POST YOUR DISCOVERIES
3.) We want to know not only that you completed a line or the whole card, but we would love to know WHERE you saw each flower. Please post your discoveries to the forum (and if you are a kid, we'd love to know how old you are.) You can sign up for the forum if you are not yet on it at email@example.com.
BONUS LEVEL *C*: Upload photos of your flower finds on the forum or tag your photos in social media on Instagram and Facebook at @townofportolavalley on Twitter at @PortolaValleyCA use the hastag #PVWildflowerBingo.
BONUS LEVEL *D*: Upload photos of YOU with your flower finds!
Happy nature-treasure hunting and may the best (citizen) scientist win!
