Michigan's Big Green Gym!
Michigan's DNR started the Park and Read program 4 years ago as a way to provide free passes to our state parks and recreation areas. Now with the support of Blue Cross, the program is called "Michigan's Big Green Gym"  and is another way to promote outdoor fitness and healthier lifestyles.  Resident patrons can "check out" a one day pass to any of Michigan's state parks and recreation areas and save the cost of the resident daily motor vehicle permit - ( a $6.00 savings! ) Ask at the upper level circ desk for more information.
