Upcoming Members Only Events
Our Spring Membership Drive continues through June 30. Every new and renewal membership, along with referrals – make sure to let us know if someone encouraged you to join! – will be entered into a drawing for FBRP merchandise. Your dues help cover the cost of maintaining and expanding trails, building infrastructure, and providing education signage throughout the preserve. Join or refer a friend today and help us fulfill our mission.
BRP Photo Scavenger Hunt
Rescheduled for Spring 2021
FBRP preserve ambassador, Ron Pugh captured some unique features in the BRP and is challenging you to a photo scavenger hunt for some fun on your next trip to BRP.
How it works:
There are a total of 21 photos of scenes you will find in the BRP that must be duplicated. Take a photo (selfies encouraged) and upload them to the form. The form is broken up into the two sections which correspond to the sections of BRP, East and West. There are 15 scenes found in the East section and six on the West section of BRP. The scavenger hunt is open to all. You will need a Google account to be able to submit entries. If you don’t have one, there is a prompt to create one.
MEMBERS ONLY CONTEST
The FBRP membership committee is hosting a contest for its members who submit entries. Points will be awarded for correct matches. At the end of the contest, member entrants with the highest scores will be awarded prizes. (Ties will result in a drawing.)
First place: Custom Walking Stick crafted by FBRP Ambassador, Ron Pugh
Second place: FBRP t-shirt
Third place: FBRP baseball cap
Contest runs from October 22 – November 16. Only FBRP members will be eligible for prizes. Winners will be announced the week of Nov 15th. Not a member? Join here and help support all of our environmental, recreational, and educational initiatives.
Each week, FBRP will highlight the entries on our Facebook page. Be creative and have fun exploring!
