More to Explore
June 9 – August 27
The More To Explore Program encourages all community members to get outside and explore the amazing parks, historic sites and farmers’ markets that St. Mary’s County has to offer! When you visit a site listed in the challenge, look around for a green “More to Explore” marker. Near each marker you will find a secret code (hint: it’s usually a fitness vocabulary word). Enter the secret code on Beanstack to log your visit. When you’ve visited at least 12 sites between June 9 and August 27, 2023, you’ll be entered into a grand prize drawing! Register today!
