Origin of Cash Quest

Cash Quest was created by Michael Beran, the owner of the Wildlife Command Center. Michael is an avid fan and player of Pokemon Go and noticed how much fun kids were having at a local Easter Egg Hunt when the idea hit him to create something that could bring that type of joy to adults and get whole families active in the outdoors. After a year of people being locked away on their homes dealing with the pandemic he thought a treasure hunt would be a fun way to get people back out into nature with their family and friends to embark on real life adventures.

“I rescue people from wild animals daily, I am in tune with nature, I read animal body language and animal signs. Getting people, the public out in nature may stimulate a sense of involvement. Wildlife Command Center is a conservation, nature-based business, and bringing nature back to the public is a key to our success.” – Michael Beran
