The 1st “Nature Hikeathon & Treasure Hunt @KFBG” Charity Event will be held at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden on November 13/14, 2021. In addition to raising funds for nature conservation, the event also commemorates the Kadoorie Brothers’ efforts in alleviating poverty by helping New Territories villagers help themselves through teaching farming skills, loans and gifts of farm animals, construction materials.
An 8km Hikeathon will take place on Saturday November 13. Participants will pass by the most scenic parts of KFBG, including the iconic Kwun Yum Shan and Kadoorie Brothers’ Memorial Pavilion, the 4 Pillars from the old Central Post Office, Signpost Lookout, and the Rainbow Pavilion. Along the way, participants can learn more about Hong Kong’s fauna and flora, get a taste of the Farm’s famous Roselle Tea and enjoy stunning views of the Kam Tin Valley and Tai Po countryside.
On Sunday, November 14, our Farm turns into a treasure hunt playground. You can participate as an individual, form a family or company team (2 to 4 persons). Twenty checkpoints await your discovery. Choose to visit as few or many of the checkpoints as you wish. Each one will inspire and delight you with an intriguing activity.
Join either event or sign up for both! A Bazaar awaits participants on both days, featuring tours of Kadoorie Farm’s eco-gardens, fun-filled activities, and natural products for sale. Enjoy a fun-filled weekend in nature and help raise funds for nature conservation.
Souvenirs and prizes
Each participant will receive a unique wood coaster crafted from an end-of-life tree at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden. This rare gift from nature is a reminder that we are all ambassadors for harmonising our relationship with the environment.
In addition, attractive prizes await top fundraisers, the best pictures team, animal or plant pictures to be posted on Facebook, and number of checkpoints visited during the Treasure Hunt.
Purposes of donations
All funds raised through the event will go towards KFBG’s nature-based programmes for wildlife conservation, holistic education, and sustainable living, in our mission towards harmonizing our relationship with the environment.
