Schuylkill Haven Recreation Department

#570rock Program

About the program: The Walk In Art Center and Schuylkill Haven Recreation have partnered to get the public out and about using art! Active members of the #570rocks talk about the joy of spending creative time with family and friends, giving back and spending time in nature – off the couch and breathing fresh air. And who doesn’t love a good treasure hunt – families are walking, scouring local parks, searching trails and even climbing playground equipment to find a certain rock that was posted with a clue.

Members of the #570rocks will feel that sense of community and mindfulness. Being out in nature and the community and being aware of your surroundings, you might find something other than a painted rock. Maybe a new store, a friend, a new place to watch the birds, etc.

The Rules: Nothing explicit or political. Do not take rocks from public parks that do not allow it. If you are unsure, it is best to contact the parks department. If in doubt, leave it. Rocks can be purchased at Walmart, Home Depot, TB Landscaping, Lowes and other local stores. This is a gifting project – rocks are not for sale.

As for posting on social media – this is clean, fun and family friendly. This is not to share your personal
problems. Any post not following the guidelines, will be deleted. If you block an Admin or Moderator,
you will be removed from the group.
