Get Outdoors, Lebanon County!

GO and Make Music, Lebanon County!

Are you looking for something exciting for your family to do together this summer in the great outdoors?  Looking to discover the great parks of Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, but don’t know where to start?  We’ve got you covered!  And best of all it’s free and fun for all ages!

Last year participants collectively walked over 4,000 miles!  (We walked 3,000+ miles in 2016!)  Can we top that in 2018?  Join children and families from all over Lebanon County this summer in the Get Outdoors (GO) and Make Music! program.  Get outdoors and discover the wonder of nature as you hunt for 15 activity posts hidden in parks and along trails in Lebanon County. Children follow clues available in their free GO and Make Music! musical score to locate each post.  They then make a rubbing of the unique etching plate found at each post as a record of their “find.” The more activity posts you find, the better your chances are to win an exciting grand prize.

Monday, June 4, 2018 to Monday, August 13, 2018

The GO and Build a Better World program begins on Monday, June 4th and runs until Monday, August 13th; hand in musical scores to your library by Saturday, August 18th.   Copies of the free GO and Make Music! musical score may be picked up at any Lebanon County Library starting June 4th.

  1. Pick up your musical score at your local library June 4th or later.
  2. Each family receives (1) musical score per family and (1) etching sheet per child 17 years or younger.
  3. Use your musical score to identify the 15 participating parks within Lebanon County.
  4. Use the clues to find each post located in the park. Make sure you take a crayon or pencil with you on your adventure so you can shade over the picture onto your etching sheet.  Do not use marker or pen.
  5. The last day to obtain etchings in the parks is Monday, August 13th; posts will be removed the next day.
  6. Return your etching sheet to your local library by August 18th to qualify for prizes.
