Have Fun in The Great Outdoors! Win Prizes!  

As the summer heats up, cool off with a visit to some of Baltimore County’s parks and participate in Nature Quest to experience the outdoors with friends and family.

You can bike, hike, or canoe on designated trails to complete your Quest and earn fun prizes. Find trail markers at Lake Roland, Oregon Ridge Nature Center, Benjamin Banneker Historical Park, Cromwell Valley Nature Center, Marshy Point Nature Park, Honeygo Regional Park, and the Center for Agriculture and Farm Park.

Start your adventure by picking up a Nature Quest Passport at one of the participating parks, your local Wegmans grocery store, or online. Nature Quest is ongoing, but questers who complete at least five trails each year receive free admission to that year’s Quest Fest and are entered into raffles for great prizes.

Quest Fest is on October 18, 2014 at Lake Roland. Nature Quest Fest features live animals, canoeing, archery, face painting, dam tours, raffles and more.

For more details or to download a Passport, go to: lakeroland.org/nature-quest.


Complete Your Quest in Three Easy Steps

  1. Get your Passport booklet. Pick up a Nature Quest booklet from your local Wegmans store, at participating parks, or here. Note: if you already have a booklet you can print this year’s new trail maps by visiting the website.
  2. Start hiking. Take your booklet and a pencil or crayon and head out on the trails. Record your progress by making a rubbing, with a pencil or crayon, of the trail marker located on each thirteen trails in the booklet.
  3. Collect your prizes. Prizes are awarded after accumulating rubbings from at least five of the thirteen trails and can be picked up at any of the participating parks. In addition to the prizes, questers who complete five or more trails also receive free admission to Nature Quest Fest on October 18th from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. Questers who complete nine or more trails will be entered into drawings for great prizes.
