To be eligible for the final prize, families must register by April 25, attend all weeks of the game, check in at the registration table at each location and provide documentation that they attended the self-guided events.
The 2016 Great Park Pursuit kicks-off at Keney Park in Hartford on Saturday, April 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will end June 11 at a location which will be announced as the game progresses. There will also be activities at a different state park on the five Saturdays in between. Families will learn the location of these activities by following clues at www.NoChildLeftInside.org
The Great Park Pursuit, now in its 11th season, is a series of activities designed to introduce families to the outdoors, build the next generation of environmental stewards and showcase Connecticut’s State Parks and Forests this spring.
