The Girl Scout project sends participants throughout ONP to search for hidden clues.

Girl Scout Troop 1109 of Citrus Council has created a fun outdoor escape room adventure at the Oakland Nature Preserve, 747 Machete Trail.

The rules for escape room participants are simple: Enter a magical world to find the 10 clues within one hour and “repeat them three times to save the preserve from a toxic air release that threatens to turn all the taxidermy animals into zombies.” Trail markers will help participants stay on the correct trail.

Information and a link to a Google form are available at

Rick Thomas at Branch Out Parks – Outdoor Escape Rooms was the adviser on the project.
