Block Island Glass Float Project 2013
May 31st-December 31st
The hunt begins June 2013 and continues indefinitely….it only ends when all the floats have been found!
400 Glass Floats (glass orbs about the size of a grapefruit) will be hidden on Block Island. Floats will be dated, numbered and stamped with the shape of Block Island. All floats are clear glass except for 13 (because it is 2013), which are special colored orbs. One super special float is made entirely out of gold leaf.
Floats will be hidden on the beaches and on the Greenway Trails. They will be above the high tide mark but NEVER in the dunes or up the side of the bluffs. They will be within one foot of either side of any Greenway trail they are placed on.
* This is finder’s keepers but we ask that you only keep one per seeker, please *
