Make like a scavenger and hunt for clues inside Cleveland’s most exotic destination this weekend!

Zoo Clues & Brews is happening this Wednesday Sep 5 (originally was Aug 29 but rescheduled due to weather) from 6-10 p.m. at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo (3900 Wildlife Way Cleveland).

This self-guided search includes answering wildlife-themed questions, interacting with Zoo staff, and uploading pictures and photo bombs using the Scavify app. The hunt requires a smartphone and the Scavify app, which can be downloaded by your team captain the day of the event. (The Zoo has WiFi if needed.) Throughout the evening, earn points for prizes and enter our raffle for your chance to win several prizes. Complimentary small bites, Great Lakes beer, wine, water and soft drinks are included.

At the end of the evening, prizes will be announced for team who has the most points during the hunt and the team with the most spirit. (Think: costumes, team names, custom T-shirts, hashtags and real-time posting on Instagram using #wildaboutCLE)
