MARYLAND – The Maryland Park Service is conducting an open lottery registration for Park Quest, according to the Department of Natural Resources. 

Park Quest is a family-based outdoor adventure program. 

The open lottery runs from April 27- May 1. 

DNR says this is a new process that will expand the opportunity to those who were unable to register at a set time because of other commitments.

 “Park Quest adventures are designed for families who may have never visited a state park or experienced the many natural or historical resources our public lands offer,” said Maryland Park Service Superintendent Nita Settina. “Through Park Quest, families spend quality time together engaging in adventures that teach them about Maryland history, wildlife, agriculture and outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, paddling and conserving natural resources.”

Park Quest is an 11-week competition - running from May 22 through September 7.

DNR says Park Quest challenges families to complete outdoor activities at 20 specific state parks/sites throughout Maryland.

Participants will learn about wildlife at Cunningham Falls State Park, explore hidden caves at Soldiers Delight Natural Environment Area, and experience Patapsco Valley State Park's sensory trail.

DNR says teams must consist of at least one member 16 years old or younger and at least one adult. There is a max limit of 10 participants per team.

DNR will notify the randomly chosen teams via email in early May. There will be a $10 fee per team. The groups who complete at least 10 of the quests qualify for prize drawings to be conducted in the fall.

Families who may miss registration can still participate in Park Quest with paid park entry or using their annual Maryland State Park Passport, which provides unlimited day use access through 2015.

Teams who completed 10 or more quests last year and participated in the Park Quest Rendezvous will be automatically enrolled in the 2015 program as thanks for their dedication.
