Set a reminder and we’ll make sure you're in the loop.
Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this spring, has dispersed 200 hand-blown glass orbs (inspired by the glass fishing net floats used by Japanese fishermen) across Kitsap County public lands for fearless art lovers to discover. You find it, you keep it—and what's better than a real-deal treasure hunt?! Those who scope out an orb can also share their find with the hashtag #BIMATreasureTrek for an entry to win a prize package.
BIMA’s Treasure Trek is a you-find-it, you-keep-it event with just a few guidelines to keep it fun for everyone:

The glass floats are hidden in public spaces such as parks and waterways. No need to trespass, the glass floats will never be on private property.
Trail-hidden glass floats can be found within a few feet of the trail, and floats hidden on beaches will be well above the high tide line.
Glass floats will never be hidden in ecologically sensitive areas or wetlands (soggy ground = no floats). 
Don’t forget to look up, down, all around. The glass floats may be hiding off the ground in trees, behind logs, on an old fencepost, etc.
Found one? It’s yours to keep! Keep just one, but continue to hunt and share photos if you’d like—share your find with the hashtag #BIMATreasureTrek and be entered to win one of five prize packages. 
Our first float drop will be April 1, 2023 and more will be hidden over the next six weeks, so don’t give up if you don’t find one on your first outing.

Please keep only one float per seeker. However…
Keep hunting, you might find one you like more. Please just hide your first treasure where you found the second one. Or, snap a photo and re-hide it for another seeker to find.
