Clue Explanations and Locations:

Green Medallion

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. The power plant was demolished and recycled parts became art at the site.

View history. The water tower art illustrates almost 150 years of Moorhead history.

What’s up? Water you waiting for? History is illustrated on a water tower at Woodlawn Park.

The medallion was found within the art at the Heritage Garden in Woodlawn Park.

Red Medallion

​Hike or bike. Look for a walking and bike path.

A little birdie told me. This is a good place for a bird watcher.

Look for the sign that’s red, black, gray, rose, white, brown, gold, yellow, and hairy!
Those words are descriptive of the birds on an interpretive panel at M.B. Johnson Park.

The medallion was found under the interpretive bird sign along the trails at M.B. Johnson Park.

Gold Medallion

Word in the title of a 1914 Robert Frost poem. “Mending Wall.” “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall.”

Word repeated by one of the principle characters in The Wizard of Oz movie.
Bears. “Lions and tigers and bears, oh, my!” is repeated three times just before the Cowardly Lion appears.

Oh, dear. They didn’t monkey around either.
The first zoo in the area had a deer (Homophone for dear.) and other animals including bears and a monkey. It was built near the river. Walls hold up the steep bank near the old American Legion building-turned restaurant.

The medallion was found along the wall by the old bear cage at Memorial/Riverfront Park.
