Check this page before you head out, especially if you have an older edition of the book! If there are any problems that cannot be corrected in the field, we will post an update below.
We strive to maintain the clues and boxes so that they work properly all year round. However, sometimes signs are changed, trees fall down, and other unforeseen circumstances cause small problems with Quest directions. If the problems cannot be corrected in the field, we will post updates on this page and then make updates in future book editions. It’s a good idea to check this page before heading out on a Quest, especially if you have an older version of the Quest Book. The best way to avoid confusion and surprises is to obtain the most up-to-date Quest Book available.

Bandon Tsunami Quest - Clue #11 is hard to find since a sign was replaced. The clue is the last letter in the first word(s) of the church's name.
Mt Union Cemetery Quest - The "Big Flag" referenced on p. 229 has been repositioned to the other side of the black metal benches. Start from the OLD flagpole spot to navigate to clue #7.
YYFAP Habitats of Diversity Quest - The sign for clue #6 has been replaced, so looking for the name of the "16th animal" no longer makes sense. Instead, look at the new sign on the deck to find the insect with black and _ _ _ _ _ spots. The first letter of the missing word is clue #6.
*Kilchis Point Reserve Quest - The driving directions on page 41 describe Warren Street as being "across the street from Habitat for Humanity Restore", but the ReStore has moved and is no longer there.
*Siltcoos Lagoon Trail Quest - The last four clue squares to be filled on page 190 should be numbered 6-14-18-8 (not 5-7-4-2).
*Yaquina Head Hills Quest - On page 81, a text box asks a multiple-choice question: "For what reason might native people have purposefully burned land?" The last line was inadvertently left off...it should read, "Take the letter of your answer for clue number 4."
Note: All of the issues with a * were fixed in the "Second Printing" of the 2019-20 book edition.
