'Tis the season to give thanks! We want to know what you are thankful for during the week-long Give Thanks Hiking Challenge! Tuesday, November 17 through Wednesday, November 25, get outside and walk one of our preserves. While you're there, take a selfie and put it on social media (be sure to tag us!) or email your picture to col@chikamingopenlands.org and tell us what you are thankful for.

During the week of November 17 through November 25, get out and walk a COL preserve. 

You only need to hike one of the COL preserves listed below:

Burns Prairie Preserve

Once at the preserve, take a selfie at the preserve sign or along the trail. Tag COL on Instagram, Facebook, or email your selfie to col@chikamingopenlands.org. Don't forget to tell us what you are thankful for in your selfie description!

Once you have sent us your selfie and what you are thankful for, you are entered to win a COL swag bag! Winners will be randomly selected at the end of the challenge and contacted through the platform on which you sent your selfie. Only one preserve hike and entry per person is needed to enter the Give Thanks Hiking Challenge.
