Join The Great Park Pursuit for a Nebraska Outdoor Adventure

LINCOLN – Enjoy an outdoor adventure with family or friends and experience Nebraska parks by joining The Great Park Pursuit (GPP) for a chance to win prizes.

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. 18, 2015 and follow clues that will lead them to a GPP post, where they 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 parks are: Chadron State Park, Chadron; Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area (SRA), Gering; Laing Lake Park, Alliance; Lake Ogallala SRA, Ogallala; Sutherland Reservoir SRA, Sutherland; Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park (SHP), North Platte; Sherman Reservoir SRA, Loup City; Sandy Channel SRA, Elm Creek; North Park, Holdrege; Windmill SRA, Gibbon; Fonner Park, Grand Island; Ashfall Fossil Beds SHP, Royal; Willow Creek SRA, Pierce; Crystal Cove Park, South Sioux City; Benson Park, Omaha; Louisville SRA, Louisville; Two Rivers SRA, Venice; Prairie Queen Recreation Area, Papillion; Parade of Flags, Seward; Veterans Memorial Park, Beatrice.
