You may have come across a free entry to Chehaw without even knowing it.

This week, Chehaw hid painted rocks across Albany.

The rocks can be found at restaurants, businesses and popular spots around town.

If you find a rock, you can return it to Chehaw for a free entry to the park and zoo.

Or, you can send them a picture of you with the rock on social media and they will mail you a free pass.

Even though the rocks have only been across town for a few days, Chehaw has already seen a great response from the community. 

"This is a great positive movement. It gets people outside spreading joy to strangers. You get to stop for a minute and be happy and we wanted to be involved with that," said Director of Community Engagement Morgan Burnette. 

Once found, Chehaw encourages you to hide the rocks again for other people to find.
