What is an Active Transportation Scavenger Hunt?

This is a semi-virtual event for active transportation users to explore their neighborhood and get to know their community. Using the Scavify app to track points and complete tasks, participants will ride, walk, skate, and roll around Imperial Beach visiting points of interest, shops, sharing photos, and completing mini challenges.

The more tasks you complete, the higher the chances you have of winning prizes.

When is the event?

Tasks must be completed by 3pm on September 19th to be counted.

How does this support businesses and communities?

The purpose of this event is to encourage active transportation use and highlight businesses, art and culture!

Participants must use active transportation to explore the city. Because active transportation allows people to move slowly and parking is not a factor in their access, these people are generally more positive, and they are able to experience, and see more of what your area has to offer! Cities are safer when more people go with active transportation. This event encourages people reduce their local carbon footprint and live a more healthy life style.

Products, gift certificates and services purchased from businesses in your area will be awarded as prizes to the scavenger hunt winners. We expect about 800 people to participate, visiting your business district regularly during month long event and discovering what makes Imperial Beach so special.
