Now through August 30

This program encourages Lebanon County children and families to read and be physically active in the summer months.  We are proud to "host a post"  for families to find and where your children will collect a rubbing of a special picture.  All GO Lebanon! children who find and log at least 3 different rubbings will receive a reward.  Find and collect more and be eligible to win a grand prize!  You can pick up "Your Storybook 2020" at the office at the Governor Dick Environmental Center as well as the rubbing sheet.  Get Outdoors, families, and have fun!
