Afterward, we’ll maneuver inside and start our gaming tournament, featuring “Trekking the National Parks.” A brief tutorial will be provided, breaking down the tournament structure and game mechanics. The winner of the tournament will receive a copy of Trekking The National Parks, a $50 gift card to Snakes & Lattes and prizes from our other sponsors. There will also be a raffle at the event for an additional copy of Trekking The National Parks and other prizes from our sponsors. Anyone who does not wish to compete in the tournament but would still like to spectate is welcome to hang out after the nature walk.
