What is Beanstack?
From this site, you can track your books and time spent reading, activities you’ve accomplished, and the GO (Get Outdoors) York parks you’ve visited.
Why should I use Beanstack?
This year, GO York is going digital! While you still have your physical rubbing sheets and booklets, we will be tracking everyone’s progress digitally through Beanstack, including our drawings for the three grand prize winners.
By collecting data from your logged parks, GO York can receive the proper funding from year to year, allowing this program to remain free for all!
How do I know if I’ve earned an entry into the prize drawing?
Through Beanstack, you earn virtual badges! Each virtual ‘point’ badge you earn counts as another entry into the GO York drawing.
You can earn up to five entries into the GO York drawing:
- 3 Logged Hikes = 1 Badge & 1 Participation Prize; No entries
- 4-10 Logged Hikes = 1 Badge & 1 Entry
- 11-19 Logged Hikes = 1 Badge & 2 Total Entries
- 20-29 Logged Hikes = 1 Badge & 3 Total Entries
- 30 Logged Hikes = 2 Badges & 5 Total Entries
This year, we’re also awarding a free book by local author Tony Fredericks to anyone (ages 11 and below) that completes 15 of the 30 hikes!
