Great Park Pursuit
For a fun summer adventure exploring Nebraska parks with friends and family, sign up for the Great Park Pursuit. In this free program, players can visit up to 20 official park sites across the state, where a Great Park Pursuit post is hidden. Teams follow clues to the post and prove they were there with the free mobile app, or by making a pencil impression of the post to mail in. The app makes it fast and easy to sign up and log site visits, so you can spend more time out exploring parks.
Once you log at least two site visits, you’ll be in the running for a prize, with chances to win additional prizes as you visit more parks. Prizes include an iPad, cabin stays, backyard game packages, Nebraska state park permits, Nebraskaland Magazine subscriptions and more. The grand prize is an outdoor recreation package with a retail value of $1,500.
Featured parks can be found across the state, and include a mix of state parks, local community parks, Natural Resource District (NRD) park areas, and occasionally federal parks, as well. Make a day of it, or a weekend – there’s plenty to do at each one.
The Great Park Pursuit is a joint program of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and the Nebraska Recreation and Park Association, and thousands of people have participated since the program began in 2008.
