Passport Adventure

PassportAdventure2024_fillable_Page_1.pngThe passport adventure ended May 31st.

The watershed district encompasses three creeks: Riley, Purgatory, and Bluff creeks. As they wind their way toward the Minnesota River, these creeks pass through multiple wetlands and lakes. These waterbodies offer many opportunities to hike, boat, fish, watch wildlife, and more! This May, get out and explore some of our favorite spots in the Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District with the Passport Adventure.  

How to Participate 

  1. Download the Adventure Passport here or pick up a printed copy at our office.
  2. From May 1st to 31st, visit the passport locations.
  3. At each location, find the QR code (look for a 2x4-inch white label with the watershed district logo).
  4. Scan the QR code with your smartphone camera. To do this, open your camera and hover over the QR code (you don't need to take a photo). When the text "" pops up over the image, tap this text to open up the linked passport phrase webpage. When the webpage opens, write down the passport phrase.
  5. Once you have visited all six locations and collected the passport phrases, you can claim your prize pack at the RPBCWD office. (Limited to first 30 people. One prize pack per household.)

Don’t have a printer or unable to pick up a printed passport? No worries! The digital version of the passport is a fillable PDF form, or you can simply keep a list of the passport phrases to send us by email.

The first 30 people to complete their passport will receive a RPBCWD Prize Pack! Limit one prize pack per household.
