Agents of Discovery is an educational mobile game where people of all ages can learn about the natural, cultural, and historic resources at parks around the world. Are you ready to explore your Santa Clara County Parks in a whole new way?

Complete activities and answer questions to earn points, complete a “mission”, and receive a prize reward. A smart phone or tablet is required but the app is free, and once you download it, it does not require WiFi nor a data connection. All our missions are now available to play in English and soon to be in Spanish!
