Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney has announced that the popular Wegmans Passport to Family Wellness program is now available in Onondaga County. The program is designed to encourage residents to visit all of the walking/hiking trails located within five county parks, Beaver Lake Nature Center, Highland Forest, Jamesville Beach Park, Pratt's Falls Park and Onondaga Lake Park.
"We are pleased to be collaborating with Wegmans on this wellness effort. Whether you're looking for a quick walk along the water, a chance to be at one with nature or an exhilarating hike through the forest, you'll find it at Onondaga County Parks," said the County Executive.
The Passport is a small booklet containing 19 different trail maps with a brief description of the location and the type of terrain that will be encountered. On each map is a small star or arrow showing the location of a trail marker used to emboss the name of the trail in the booklet with a pencil or crayon. If all 19 trails are completed, the participant will receive a coupon for a Wegmans brand product and will be eligible to win the annual grand prize, a $100 Wegmans gift card for a picnic for friends and family and use of a shelter at any county park.
The winner will be drawn on October 31 each year. Passports are available at the participating county parks and at area Wegmans. Participation in the program is free. Wegmans provides the passports, the trail marker plaques, coupons and a $100 gift card for the annual grand prize drawing.
