Saturday, September 11 - Sunday, October 10, 2021

Lace up your hiking boots and grab the bug spray because it is time for the 2021 Preserve Challenge. During this virtual challenge you are encouraged to explore the natural areas available throughout our parks and preserves. For four weeks beginning September 11th, we challenge you to dedicate time to experience nature weekly.  With the Preserve Challenge your goals are yours to set - incorporate nature into your weekly routine, build endurance by adding miles, or discover new places throughout our community.

To join, simply register and start exploring. Throughout the Preserve Challenge, we will send weekly emails featuring select and parks and preserves, along with tips for exploring. At the end of the four weeks, everyone will be sent a commemorative prize.

Collectively as a community, can we visit every preserve and park?  Share your experience on social media using #ExploreWashtenaw. We will keep track of places that have been visited and update weekly. 

The outdoors belongs to us all. Use this challenge to find your own path and strengthen your connection to the natural world. We look forward to you joining us on this journey!
