Fun - The Great Outdoors - Prizes
Have an adventure in your own backyard with Baltimore County Nature Quest. Pick up your Nature Quest Passport booklet at participating parks, or at your local Wegmans grocery store. You may download a booklet from the Marshy Point Nature Center Council web page. Passports will direct participants to hiking, biking, and canoeing opportunities at the County’s nature sites, where questers can record their visit in the Passport. Prizes will be given to the first 250 questers to complete five trails. Those that complete seven to nine trails will be entered into drawings for even more prizes. All questers that complete at least five trails will earn free admission to the Nature Quest Fest at Robert E. Lee Park on November 2, 2013.
