The Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank commission is celebrating the agency’s quarter century mark with an invitation to the public to enter a photography scavenger hunt.

The hunt will run through the summer season, according to a press release, and all entrants who successfully complete it will qualify for a grand prize drawing. Rules and information are available at or at the Land Bank office on Main Street in Edgartown.

The Land Bank, established by an act of the Massachusetts legislature in 1986, owns more than 3,000 acres of Martha’s Vineyard land, much of which it manages for public use. The Land Bank Commission includes six elected members and one appointee. Land Bank properties include beaches, hiking trails, and agricultural lands. For more information call 508-627-7141.
