This year’s treasure is a special acrylic medallion, hidden somewhere in the city of Rochester and on public property (but not on a golf course or cemetery) and NEVER on private property that might appear open to the public. It will not be hidden on public land that would be dangerous to search (roadways, etc.) You will absolutely know if you find it! Once found, it must be exchanged for its bounty.

Search, but please don’t destroy the natural beauty of Rochester or the Treasure hiding place! Each day’s clue will bring you closer to the treasure’s location, and it will be evident once found!
