Libraries offer free passes to hundreds of state parks, recreation & cultural destinations

(WXYZ) - Library card holders statewide can get a free pass to Michigan's state parks, historic sites, cultural attractions, campgrounds and recreation areas through the third annual Michigan Activity Pass program.

Beginning May 24, the Michigan Activity Pass will enable library cardholders to print a pass, either from home or their local library, that is valid for one-time entry into any Michigan state park or recreation area and more than 100 participating cultural institutions, including many museums, for up to one week.

The program is sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the Michigan Recreation and Park Association (MRPA) and The Library Network.
