About

The Story

Who will be the 2017 Ultimate Bubolz Nature Preserve Survivor? It could be you! Do you have what it takes to survive 24 hours among the elements while competing in both intellectual and physical challenges? If so, the Gordon Bubolz Nature Preserve has the ultimate challenge for you. Join us and put your skills to the test! Teams of 2 will compete in challenges that will test their outdoor skills, endurance and knowledge of the outdoors. These challenges will allow them the opportunity to score points and earn comfort items. The team to score the most points in the 12 challenges will be crowned the “Ultimate Bubolz Nature Preserve Survivor” and earn the competitions grand prize!

Past Challenges Included:

  • Light My Fire
  • Hit Me With Your Best Shot
  • Freak on a Leash
  • Show Me the Way
  • I’m Still Standing
  • Whip It
  • Get It Together
  • Don’t Bring Me Down
  • Trapped
  • The Long & Winding Road

Spectators will also have an opportunity to showcase their talents by participating in various crowd contests and challenges, allowing everyone the opportunity to participate.  This is the major fundraising event of the year for Bubolz, and maximizing the dollars raised is a priority.  To help make it more fun and beneficial for the teams, as teams reach certain dollar levels, they will earn items to make their overnight stay a bit more comfortable.  The dollar amounts and items are as follows:

≥ $1000           2 camp pads
≥ $1500           2 camp pillows
≥ $2000           2 sleeping pads
≥ $2500           1 tent

One hundred percent (100%) of the dollars raised from this event will directly fund the Environmental Education programs at the preserve. Over 5,500 public and parochial school students, elementary through high school, participate in a wide range of onsite programs each year. While the actual cost of these programs is about $18.65 per student, area schools are only able to subsidize a modest portion of about $3.50 per student. Each year the nature preserve counts upon donations and special events like this one to underwrite the $83,325.
