Get out and go! Visit any of the 13 participating trails or two of your choosing as a “free space.”
Take a picture of yourself, pet, or household members in front of an easily identifiable landmark or sign at the park or trail.
Email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive credit for each location. Please include your name, how many household members participated, and name of the park/trail visited.
Visit 10 parks/trails by December 6th to receive an achievement earning! All earnings will be mailed at the end of the Challenge.
You do not have to walk, run or bike the entire trail to get credit for the challenge – just visit and enjoy to earn your recognitions!
