Big South Fork Receives Grant for “GO BIG” 2017 Challenge

Oneida, TN (2017-03-16) Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area was recently awarded a grant by Eastern National for the “GO BIG” 2017 Challenge.

The GO BIG 2017 Challenge is a year-long, self-paced, park-wide event designed to encourage visitors to get out and explore Big South Fork NRRA.  The challenge encourages participants to earn points by answering questions about the natural/cultural history of the park that will require exploration in search of site-specific information at over 50 different destinations.

“For 2016, the Big South Fork Centennial Challenge program was offered with great success, and this grant will ensure that this exciting new program will continue to introduce the importance of these special places to the next generation of park visitors, supporters, and advocates,” said Superintendent Niki Stephanie Nicholas.

Eastern National is a not-for-profit cooperating association that supports interpretive, educational, and scientific programs and services of the National Park Service.
