Valley Quest is an intertown treasure hunt in which schoolchildren or community groups create maps of their towns' special places to exchange with people in nearby communities. Aiming to strengthen connections to community, it is also a year-long curriculum integrating local history, mapping skills, interviews with community elders, poetry writing, and outdoor exploration.
