The Great Park Pursuit promotes active lifestyles by encouraging participants to visit up to 20 GPP sites located across Nebraska between May and September. Players follow clues leading them to a GPP post, where they use a pencil to make an impression of the post to prove they were there. The more impressions mailed in, the better the chances of winning a prize in the drawing.
