The communities’ third annual outdoor festival, once again, offers both traditional and new types of outdoor activities. Many of the hands-on activities we are trying to offer include: outdoor adventure sports (climbing, rafting, kayaking), geocaching, hiking, archery, fishing, gear clinics, wilderness safety, and other outdoor-based activities, including informational booths of various outdoor organizations and resources. Families will have the opportunity to gather information and/or skills they may need to better continue their adventures in the outdoors.
Besides celebrating with children and families that our community is an active, exciting and fun place to live, work and play, the goal of this festival is to provide information and education through hands-on activities to increase awareness of, participation in and appreciation of the many outdoor opportunities in our community and beyond. The future of our public lands, locally and nationally, will be determined by the extent to which Americans care about the Great Outdoors.
