The GO BIG 2017 Challenge is a year-long, self-paced, park-wide event designed to encourage you to get out and explore YOUR park.
Until December 9, 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 at over 50 different destinations. Some destinations may even require a photo to be taken. Participants are encouraged to share their photos via social media using #GOBigSouthFork17. 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 2017 Challenge patch that was specially designed for this event.
To get started, download the challenge booklet at https://www.nps.gov/biso/planyourvisit/go-big-2017-challenge.htm or pick it up at one of our visitor centers. The challenge booklet is broken up into five different challenge categories. Pick and choose the challenges that are right for you, or choose to do them all!
The challenge will wrap up on December 9, at 10 a.m. (ET) with a GO BIG celebration. All visitors that participate in the challenge and are present will be recognized for their accomplishments and be considered for an award in various categories.
