New Year, Greener You

One of the many ways people celebrate a new year is to create New Year’s resolutions. Join our “New Year, Greener You” game to help you achieve your sustainability goals for 2023! Whether your New Year’s resolution is to become “greener,” save money, have more fun, spend time with family, or even participate in events in your community, Goosechase is for you! 

This is a fun and interactive opportunity for all members of our community ꟷ youth, friends, family, coworkers and neighbors ꟷ to take actions toward sustainability in the new year.

  • Points are awarded based on the difficulty of the mission.
  • Challenge others to see who can complete the most missions and earn the most points.

  • All other mission submissions will be public for other participants to view to maintain a fun and competitive environment. 

All missions are either located in Washington County, Oregon or can be completed online.

There are many different missions for you to try! Here are just a few examples:
