Quest is a self-directed cross between a scavenger hunt and a tour that allows visiting families or school groups to explore the Research Center and learn more about fish and hatcheries at the same time.
During the Quest, classes, families or individuals will find a series of clues that will lead them to the location of a hidden box. Inside the box is a guest book and a unique rubber stamp. Questers who successfully find the hidden box can sign the guest book and stamp their clue book as a sign of accomplishment.
Participants in the OHRC Quest will visit the site of an early homestead, follow the Fall Creek interpretive trail, see where salmon spawn, and tour the four artificial streams on site. Along the way they’ll learn about the area’s history, observe many native plants, see a lamprey-friendly fish ladder and discover there are 8 miles of underground water pipe to carry all the water used for streams, tanks, raceways and the research facility.
