HLC hosts the Jingle Hike Challenge event during the holidays. Jingle bells and bows are tied to 12 trees in parks throughout southwestern Illinois from Thanksgiving Day to New Year’s Day. Participants are asked to visit as many parks as they can, take a selfie with the bell, and submit the photo evidence using the QR code or link on the tag or map. #JingleHike

?? A bonus entry can be used by correctly identifying the tree species the bell is tied to. Don't worry, we'll have bell location and tree ID hints.
