“I don’t think that it is depressing and I wanted to show other people that it is a great place to live,” she said.
To do this, McGinnis has left 25 scavenger hunts in parks across Broome County that show off the great things the county has to offer. The clue sheets for each BroomeQuest have local history written by the Broome County Historian and nature notes written by an award winning naturalist. Once individuals complete the 1-2 mile hike they will receive a stamp for their journals that were carved from stamp carvers around New York that represent Broome County activities and history.

Any resident or visitor can go on a BroomeQuest at any time. The parks are free and McGinnis plans on these BroomeQuests being in place for many years.
