Through September 30, 2011

Search the great outdoors for 15 of 30 marked TREEmendous trees throughout the Missouri and Illinois metro St. Louis region.

Ways to participate

Download the Tree Hunt Guide, clue map, and photo journal or view the Google map to find clues about locations of the trees.

At each tree location, you’ll find a TREEmendous sign that identifies the tree. Write down the information included on the sign, or take a photo of the sign with your smartphone.

On each sign, a scannable QR (Quick Response) code will also enable smartphone users to visit a web page and learn more about its surroundings. Many reliable (and FREE!) QR code scanners are available to download from your phone’s app store or marketplace.

Offset Your Carbon Footprint
For every Tree Hunt web page that’s visited, 10 lbs. of carbon dioxide will be offset by 3Degrees, Ameren Missouri Pure Power’s partner for renewable energy and carbon balancing services.

Collect Your Prize!
Document your findings and bring the completed guide (or an image of each tree) to the TREEmendous Interactive Discovery Center at the Missouri Botanical Garden to receive a special tree-themed reward.
