Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands Program Treasure Coin Hunt

The search is on! In celebration of the 30-year anniversary of the Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands Program, commemorative treasure coins are being hidden at a variety of nature sanctuaries throughout Brevard County for visitors to find and keep.

All we ask is that you let us know if you find a coin by sending us a photo of you holding the coin at the hiding location and include a quick summary of how you found it. We would like to share your search story for others to enjoy.

The only clues provided will be the trail map and a single photo of each hiding location.  All photos are taken directly from the marked trail.

All coins will be hidden within 10 feet or less of a marked trail.

All hiding locations will be visible from the trail.

No digging or climbing will be required.

Coins may only be directly visible from a specific angle.

Please only keep one coin per person. 

Take a photo of yourself holding the coin at the hiding spot and send it to us.

We will notify treasure hunters on Facebook and update this page once a coin has been found so others don’t continue to look for it.

Get Out and Explore your local nature sanctuaries and best of luck in your quest for a Treasure Coin.

Victorious Coin Hunters at the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary!

We found coin #3!

Happy 30th anniversary! Thank you for the added incentive to get out & explore some of Brevard's nature sanctuaries! We love the Enchanted Forest & we loved revisiting it!

We had a great hour & a half hike on April 7th exploring the trails in search of one of the treasure coins. It was 5:00pm, closing time at the park. So we said that we would be back. There were 2 coins that were still available.

We returned on April 13th looking for only 1 specific location now as the 3rd coin had been found. It only took about a half hour when the location was spotted! Woo hoo! We found one! We had a great time & continued exploring & hiking the trails for another hour. We returned to the nature center & were looking around when we spotted the location where coin #4 had been hidden! Wow! I don't think that we knew that location was there! Great fun!

We think that this was a great idea & hope that many more coins at different parks are hidden.

We have been Geocaching for 15 years & appreciate Brevard County Parks & Rec & the EELs program allowing geocaches to be placed. We will encourage our local Geocaching group to get out & look for a treasure coin!

Thank you for creating this celebratory scavenger hunt. Our family enjoyed the well kept trails while looking for the treasure.

Hello, my son found the #4 treasure coin at the Grant Flatwoods Sanctuary today. We started our hike at the Micco trailhead. He was loosing hope after having passed a thousand other pine trees before coming upon the red blaze with the double trunks like the clue picture. He was very excited to pull away a palm frond and see the coin hiding. Thank you for creating this fun scavenger hunt!

Found about noon today just as the troops were getting tired! It gave us enough energy to finish out our hike! What a fun adventure! Thank you! We were so close to giving up. We were going the opposite direction and I happened to turn around and see that part on the tree. We didn’t even get close to spotting the others. And even did some trails twice! A solid 3 hour adventure that’s greatly appreciated because both boys are sleeping! So much fun!

We found coin #4 at the Enchanted Forest! After searching some trails, we stopped at the theatre for a snack before leaving and slowly realized that this might be the tree we were looking for. Kids were very excited- apparently, they were indeed the “lucky charm” we needed. They had to take one-minute turns holding it for quite a while.

Grant Flatwoods Coin 1 Found

Success at last!

I’m so happy I decided to look at EEL website after my hike yesterday and learned about the Coin Hunt. I just had to go out again today to find one. I started my hike at the Crepe Myrtle trailhead and kept my eyes peeled for one of clues. It was pretty obvious when I found the rootball. I looked around it for a couples minutes and finally saw the little baggie.

Coin 1 found at Pine Island Conservation Area.

We found a treasure coin at the Pine Island Conservation Area yesterday! It is the coin in photo 1 found in the palm tree.

It was a beautiful day to walk the trails. We decided to try Shoreline first. Saw some baby gators making the cutest sounds as we passed the canal. We kept our eyes peeled for any clues, a few times we thought we had the right area, but when we saw the right tree we recognized it immediately! It put a big smile on our faces to have found a coin.

We look forward to visiting other parks in this beautiful county we call home.

Coin #7 found at Pine Island!

I found a coin near the end of the trail going to the lagoon at Pine Island. I left the tag saying the coin was found at the tree. I love hiking all the trails in the area and seeing the wild life. I saw that someone had posted a link to the program website and figured…I’ll drive up there from Viera and find that last coin. I passed by it twice and then came back after a few more miles of searching in the opposite direction and then spotted the tree that looked similar to the one in the hints document. I’m glad I went back and examined the back of the palm trunk. It was a beautiful day to enjoy the trails and wildlife.
