The Michigan Activity Pass returns for a second season

(WXYZ) - Starting May 24, library card holders statewide can once again get free or discounted access to hundreds of Michigan's state parks, historic sites, cultural attractions, campgrounds and recreation areas through the second annual Michigan Activity Pass program.

The Michigan Activity Pass is aimed at encouraging Michigan residents to use state parks and recreation areas to be active in support of a healthier lifestyle.  Cardholders of participating libraries can print a free one-day pass, either at home or at their local library, which can be used at any of Michigan's 102 state parks or 138 state forest campgrounds.

The program also offers free or discounted admission to 170 historical and cultural destinations in Michigan. New this year, parents or educators of fourth graders can access the National Park Service's Every Kid in a Parkinitiative, which provides free passes to Michigan's national parks and lakeshores, including Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Isle Royale National Park, Keweenaw National Historic Park, North County National Scenic Trails, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and River Raisin National Battlefield Park.
