Geauga Park District Takes Part in Challenging Ohioans to Explore the Buckeye State’s Natural Treasures
Ohio residents hit the road for an opportunity to win a 2012 Honda Insight Hybrid. This summer, Geauga Park District has teamed up with The Nature Conservancy in Ohio and Honda of America Mfg. Inc. to help Ohio residents experience the outdoors in a new way with Natural Treasures of Ohio.
Now through August 8, Ohioans can enter for a chance to win a 2012 Honda Insight Hybrid online by submitting a picture of themselves at a “treasured” location – and the list of locations includes Geauga Park District’s Burton Wetland Nature Preserve at 15681 Old Rider Road in Burton/Newbury Townships!
To complete the challenge, residents must upload a photo of themselves with a site’s designated landmark. In the case of Burton Wetlands, that landmark is the observation deck overlooking Lake Kelso. Participants may also locate a complete map of treasured areas – as well as a series of other fun, family-friendly activities to try while on site – at Geauga Park District.
One grand prize winner will receive the 2012 Honda Insight Hybrid, and five second place winners will receive $500 REI gift cards. Good luck!
