PINE RIVER — Everyone is invited to take part in Happy Dancing Turtle’s Winter Bingo Scavenger Hunt.

The challenge is to take photos of items listed on the bingo card and submit them either online or via email. Anyone may join this no-cost adventure at any time, but must submit all photos by Jan. 15.

This all-ages activity encourages observation and seeing different aspects of the environment. There are 24 items in total, ranging from a moonlit walk to woodpecker holes to subnivean tunnels.

Participants must complete one row on the card and submit photos to be eligible to receive a prize. The more photos submitted and the more bingos found, the more chances to win a bigger prize.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
