What is the Hidden Bottle Hunt?
Oregon’s iconic and groundbreaking Bottle Bill is turning 50 this July, and to celebrate, we created six commemorative, golden bottles and hidden them in six different locations throughout the state. We will release separate clues leading to the location of each bottle over five days in July, the 7th – 11th.
When is the Hidden Bottle Hunt?
The Hidden Bottle Hunt will run Wednesday July 7 through Sunday July 11.
Where are the bottles hidden?
We have five zones throughout the state. We have hidden one bottle each in Zones 2, 3, 4 and 5. Due to the population size in Zone 1, we have hidden two bottles in Zone 1 and will treat that zone as Zone 1a and Zone 1b.
What do the bottles look like?
We have taken six of our unique BottleDrop Refillable bottles – used for our Refillable beverage program – and had them specially painted gold by a professional artists group in Oregon. The bottles include a unique 50th Anniversary label and include a metal emblem honoring the milestone.
The bottles will be wrapped to prevent breakage and covered in a burlap sack to protect them from the elements while they wait for you to find them.
How do I participate?
We will release a new clue each day for each bottle location during the hunt, or until the bottle is found. Starting July 7, the first clue will be published at 10am lower down on this page. Clues will also be shared by email and our social media channels. Sign up to receive an email at 10am every day of the hunt to have them delivered to your inbox.
