Get up and get moving in 2019! Join in the fun and participate in Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area’s new all-inclusive GO BIG 2019 Challenge. This year-long self-paced challenge was designed to encourage ALL visitors to explore and experience Big South Fork while maintaining a healthy lifestyle, reducing stress, and being physically active.
Until December 1, participants will earn points on the honor system by answering questions about the nature, and history of the park that will require exploration in search of site-specific information. Those who wish to be considered for an award must have their booklets turned in to the Bandy Creek Visitor Center no later than December 1, 2019. Points will also be given for miles hiked, biked, paddled, or equestrian-ridden. All participants who earn at least 100 points are eligible for the GO BIG 2019 Challenge patch that was specially designed for this event.
To get started, download the challenge booklet, or pick it up at one of our visitor centers.
The challenge booklet is broken up into six different challenge categories:
- Cemetery Challenge
- Wayside Challenge (The Blue Heron Outdoor Museum is open year-round. However, the exhibits are only open April - October on Wednesdays through Sundays.)
- Trail Challenge
- Ranger Challenge
- Birding Challenge
- Social Media Challenge.
