Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area has announced that they have recently received a grant to support the park’s Centennial Challenge: 100 Miles for 100 Years. In honor of the National Park Service’s Centennial, Eastern National expanded their funding program to include additional opportunities for programs and initiatives that help visitors connect with America’s national parks.
Eastern National is a not-for-profit cooperating association that supports interpretive, educational, and scientific programs and services of the National Park Service.
The Big South Fork Centennial Challenge: 100 Miles for 100 Years challenges park visitors to complete at least 100 miles of hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, trail running and/or paddling within the park’s 500-mile multi-system trails including 70+ miles of the Big South Fork River and its tributaries. Participants who successfully complete the challenge and log their miles by December 2, 2016, are eligible to receive a special edition “Centennial Challenge” patch.
