Instagram Photo Scavenger Hunt runs through February

February 4, 2019

Dig the Dunes is excited to team up with Shirley Heinze Land Trust for another photo scavenger hunt! This year we are also partnering with LambStone Cellars Winery in Valpo, where we will have our live prize drawing and party on March 7.

So what is this scavenger hunt, you ask? It’s a great way to get out and explore a new trail! (or maybe new spots at an old trail). This year we are sending you out to Meadowbrook Nature Preserve, located at 109 W. 700 West in Valparaiso.

So here’s what you need to do:

  1. Follow @digthedunes, @heinzetrust and @lambstone_winery on instagram.
  2. Go to and learn about Meadowbrook Nature Preserve, how to get there and download a trail map. (you can do this for all their properties!)
  3. Head out to Meadowbrook and get some photos. Here are your clues: • tulip tree from ’85 • water that meanders • object built for rest • place for shelter • meadowbrook sign …and BONUS: Glass of wine at Lambstone.
  4. Once you’ve got your photos, post them in a single album and be sure to hashtag #digthedunes #heinzetrust and #lambstonecellars. Make sure your account is public or we won’t be able to see your photos! (if you want to stay private, you can tag us all individually).

Contest will run through March 4, so you have four weeks to get out, explore and have some fun! Prizes will include t-shirts, decals, koozies, magnets and more! There will be three winners!

Join the facebook event, right here! (Stay up to date on info about the hunt and the live drawing at Lambstone)
