Colorado Parks and Wildlife is ready for some “Wild Times at St. Vrain State Park,” Saturday, Sept. 22.  Families, friends, and new outdoor recreationists are invited to join us for a morning of fresh air, fishing, and more.

Attendees will have the opportunity to shoot bows and arrows, fish in one of the park’s many ponds, and try their hand at shooting .22 rifles: all under the watchful eyes of trained professionals and partners.  A nature hike, snacks, and goody bags will round out this morning of healthy fun.

Registration is $5 (no credit cards) and is limited to 100 attendees. A daily Colorado State Parks Pass ($7 per vehicle) or an annual pass is required and can be purchased at the park on the day of the event.  Participants will receive instruction in the fine art of outdoor recreation and leave the event ready to get outside with confidence.
