Nature Quest

Complete Your Quest in Three Easy Steps!

Get your Passport booklet

Pick up a Nature Quest booklet from your local Wegmans store, at any of the participating Baltimore County Recreation and Parks facilities or download and print from the following link.

Start hiking

Take your booklet and a pencil or crayon and head out on the trails. Record your progress by making a rubbing of the trail marker located on each of the 16 trails in the booklet.

Collect your prizes

Prizes are awarded after accumulating rubbings from at least 5 of the 16 trails and can be picked up at any of the participating locations described in the booklet.
