Special Events & Projects

Youth Day

This event gives kids the opportunity to experience a wide range of outdoor activities ranging from shooting pellet guns and learning firearm safety with members of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, a casting station sponsored by the Three Rivers Bass Club, and outdoor education with a DNR Conservation Officer.

Our 2018 Youth Day was held on June 16th and had 75 youths along with their parents in attendance. The overwhelming favorite activity was the floating archery station. We invite you, your family, and friends to join us next year on Saturday, June 15th to grow the outdoor tradition!
