A scavenger hunt leading participants to County parks, the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse, Red Clay Music Foundry, Suwanee Sculptour and the Duluth Town Green began on July 1st with one lucky winner receiving an iPad. Participants visit each location and post photos to Twitter and Instagram  with #exploregwinnettmonth to enter.
