Offered through MI Big Green Gym, a collaboration between Blue Cross, mParks and the DNR, the Michigan Activity Pass encourages Michigan residents to lead healthier lifestyles through the use of state parks and recreational areas. Beginning May 24, 2017 through May 23, 2018, cardholders of participating libraries, can print a free one-day pass, either at home or at their local library, which can be used at 435 participating destinations across the state including any of Michigan’s 102 state parks or 138 state forest campgrounds. The program also offers free or discounted admission to 195 historical and cultural destinations in Michigan. This year, nine new destinations have been added to the program’s already inclusive list of parks and institutions across the state.
All Peter White Public Library card-holders are eligible for one pass every week. From the Michigan Activity Pass website they can search attractions near home (19 destinations within 50 miles of PWPL) or near any Michigan vacation destination. Select a destination, enter your information, and print your pass. (Printing services are available here at the library.)
