Looking for a family-friendly activity this summer that will benefit body and mind? Consider Nebraska’s Great Park Pursuit!
In its third year, this popular program encourages visits to parks across the state, as well as the benefits of exercise in the great outdoors. This year the program has expanded to 20 areas around the state! The fact that you can win prizes for participating adds to the fun.
How it works – Visit any or all of the 20 participating state, local or federal parks and follow clues to locate a station tracing post to create a tracing of a nature impression.
Once you have made an impression, mail it into the Great Park Pursuit office at Nebraska Game and Parks in Lincoln, indicating the total number of parks visited.
Entry into various prize drawings are based on the number of traced impressions collected, so the more impressions you make the greater your opportunity to win.
How to get started: Register your team online or request a packet and registration form by calling (402) 471-5424. Your team can include individuals, families, friends, coworkers, youth organizations or any other group.
Then just select a park from the 20 available on the locations page at the website and get started! Print off the park page and take it to that park. Follow the clues on the park page to locate the station tracing post. Make a tracing of the impression. Plan your next GPP park trip.
