Montco Trail Challenge:
The Montgomery County Health Department, in partnership with the Planning Commission, Commissioners, and Parks, Trails, and Historic Sites, is sponsoring a family-friendly Trail Challenge for all ages!  As we have worked to promote the 5-2-1-0 message throughout the school year, the Montco Trail Challenge is a great opportunity to put the numbers into action by encouraging physical activity and reducing screen time through exploration of the county’s parks, trails, and historic sites.  Selected parks and trails throughout the County have been identified and assigned their own unique shape which is mounted at trail heads or parking lots. Upon visiting the listed parks and trails, participants have to find and correctly identify the designated shape, similar to a scavenger hunt.  Depending on how many trails or parks participants visit, tiered educational reinforcements can be earned.  Please join us in sharing this event with your students and staff.
