What is it?
To celebrate BC Family Day and BC Heritage Week, Filberg Lodge and Park is inviting the Comox Valley to take part in an interactive and COVID-19 friendly event designed to get us all outside and exploring the Valley’s history.
How it works
The Hunt for Heritage will start with one clue (Clue #1) which will be emailed to registered participants, given out through social media and posted on the Filberg website. It will point participants to the first stop on the adventure. Subsequent clues will be in the form of laminated cards posted at each heritage stop. Each card will contain the clue to the next stop on the adventure and a QR code with a link to historical information about the stop you are currently at.
Where is it?
Heritage stops have been chosen in Union Bay, Royston, Cumberland, Courtenay, K’ómoks First Nation, Comox and CFB Comox. Help us to promote heritage in the Comox Valley by taking selfies at various stops along the way and upload them to the event Facebook/Instagram page and use the hashtag #huntforheritageCV.
Registered participants will be entered in a random draw to win a Comox Valley History package (prizes will be drawn on Monday, February 28 and the winners will be notified by email).
When is it?
The Hunt for Heritage starts on Saturday, February 19 (Family Day weekend) and runs until 5 pm on Saturday, February 26 (Heritage week is February 21 to 27).
Registration begins February 7, 2022.
