Great Park Pursuit Starts May 1

LINCOLN – The Great Park Pursuit (GPP) begins its seventh year of giving people an opportunity to win prizes while enjoying parks across Nebraska.

The goal of GPP, a partnership between the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and the Nebraska Recreation and Park Association, is to promote active lifestyles while increasing awareness of the state’s nature-rich outdoor recreation opportunities.

This is done by encouraging participants to visit up to 20 GPP sites located across Nebraska between May 1 and Sept. 17, 2014 and follow clues that will lead them to a GPP post, where use a pencil to make an impression of the post to prove they were there. Prizes and entry into drawings are based on the number of impressions collected. The grand prize is an outdoor recreation package with a retail value of $1,500.

The participating sites are: Box Butte Reservoir State Recreation Area (SRA), Kimball, Smith Falls State Park (SP), Merritt Reservoir SRA, Samuel R. McKelvie National Forest, Niobrara SP, Red Willow Reservoir SRA, Medicine Creek SRA, Lexington, Fort Kearny SRA, Liberty Cove Natural Resources District (NRD), York, Rockford Lake SRA, Wagon Train SRA, Lincoln, Plattsmouth, Platte River SP, Schramm Park SRA, Chalco Hills NRD, and Fort Atkinson State Historical Park.

For more information, to register or to see a list of the prizes that are available, visit negpp.org. If you have any questions or would like to request a hard copy registration form, send an e-mail to info@negpp.org.
