Michigan activity passes now available

There's a way to enjoy Michigan's state parks without opening your wallets this summer.

The Michigan activity pass allows you to access any state park for free by "checking out" a park pass at your local library.  The goal is to promote heath and fitness through all of the indoor or outdoor recreation Michigan has to offer.

Suzanne Allen, with Blue Cross Blue Shield, said, "We really believe in healthy communities and healthy living and this is a partnership that promotes that.  Sometimes for families it's a barrier to get into a park and this lets them get in for free."

Nheena Weyer Ittner, Upper Peninsula Children's Museum, said,  "People can find out we exist by sitting on their computer or going to their library in some completely different location and then they can come to visit us and use us and they will find out what an amazing place we are."

When you're at the library, all you have to do is show your card, and you can get a one-day outdoor recreation pass, which gets you into any of Michigan's 102 state parks or other indoor cultural sites for free.
