When you walk an event for credit that is sponsored by the Sacramento Walking Sticks, stamp this book and when you get 10 different events, you receive a free "Stick's Buck" (a $3 coupon that will pay the credit fee for any Sacramento Walking Sticks walk). The symbol lets you know which walks are eligible for this program.
WWW stands for Walking With Woody. This program is for anyone (member or not) who walks for credit and who wants to explore California. Take the initial of the city you are walking in (California only) and spell out "Sacramento Walking Sticks". See the Special Programs page for more details about how to get this book.
