In April, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will host its second annual Florida WildQuest event, a fun and family-friendly scavenger hunt experience.

This year’s event will take place on twelve wildlife management areas across the state during the weekends of April 22-24 and April 29-May 1. Two of those areas are in Florida’s Nature Coast: Chinsegut Wildlife and Education Area and Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area.

Florida residents and visitors are encouraged to grab their mobile device and join us on a wild adventure with scavenger hunt missions that will help participants discover some of Florida’s best spots to see animals and enjoy the outdoors.
