Niantic announced a new campaign with the National Park Foundation, celebrating 50 years of Rivers & Trails.

By sending in a postcard, either physically or digitally on Instagram with details on your escapades at one of these trails or rivers, you can get a patch and a handwritten letter from Niantic.

Players and community members are invited to visit one of the many of rivers and trails starting today through December 31, 2018. Participating players can receive a special patch and handwritten note from Niantic in the following two ways:

Send Niantic a postcard of your adventures! Tell us what you did. You can send letters and postcards to: P.O. Box 194770 San Francisco, CA 94119 (Attn: Social Impact)


Publish an Instagram post on your social feed with a picture of the trail or river you posted.

Don’t forget to tag the location you visited!
