map_2015The 2015 Michigan Activity Pass (MAP) is now available! The program kicked off Memorial Day weekend around the state. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM), Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Michigan Recreation and Park Association (MRPA), and the Library Network are all partners in the Michigan Activity Pass. MI Big Green Gym partnered up with the MAP program for 2015, which expands the former “Park and Read” program to include over 100 participating cultural and historical institutions, such as the Michigan Historical Museum in Lansing.


Library cardholders can print a pass from home or their library, valid for one-time entry into any Michigan state park or recreation area, as well as 100 historical and cultural institutions. Once printed, the passes are valid for one week.

Please go to for passes or for more information.
