Thursday, Junel0, 2010 &apos;lPtv fin '11'1111 t.lp' ....... Tri-Coun. o News Kimball, MN Ik,.,Xmd,LI, W,ial.. . j Minnesota state parks offer free admission June 12 Along with other parks depart- ments across the country, the Minnesota Department of Natu- ral Resources (DNR) is encourag- ing families to answer the call of the wild and participate in National Get Outdoors Day by offering a variety of free activities statewide Saturday, June 12. The DNR will also waive the requirement for a $5 vehicle per- mit and provide free admission at all 73 Minnesota state parks, and recreation areas that day. The goal of National Get Outdoors Day is to introduce first-time visitors to state parks, state trails, fishing piers, and other public lands. In particular, it aims to reconnect youth, whose participation in outdoor recreation has been declining, to the great out- doors. In the Twin Cities area, the main attraction will be the Take a Day Off event taking place from 1-5 p.m. at Fort Snelling State Park in St. Paul. The afternoon will include oppor- tunities to experience more than a dozen free activities, such as fishing, canoeing, geocaching, and camp- ing basics. Experts from the DNR, REI, Conservation Corps Minne- sota, and other outdoor recreation organizations will be on hand to help families design their next out- door adventure. Some Minnesota state parks are also offering free fishing clinics June 12 in conjtmction with Take- A-Kid Fishing weekend, such as a fly-fishing workshop for anglers of all ages from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at William O'Brien State Park. For a list of activities at Minnesota state parks trails, and recreation areas; check the online calendar at <www. mndnr.goNparksandtrails>, or call the DNR Information Center at (651) 296-6157 or toll-flee (888) 646-6367. In the past, the DNR offered free admission to Minnesota state parks and recreation areas on the first Sunday in June. The decision to switch to the second Saturday in June was based on the DNR's desire to support the broader effort to pro- mote National Get Outdoors Day. In addition to getting free admis- sion to parks and programs, fami- lies can pick up copies of the Parks Guide and an 80-page spring/sum- mer Programs & Special Events cat- alog when they arrive June 12. For the past 10 years, Minneso- ta's Touchstone Energy Coopera- tives has made the guide possible with their generous financial sup- port. The Programs & Special Events catalog lists more than 300 things to do between now and Labor Day. It also features an overview of what's new in 2010 at Minnesota state parks and recreation areas, such as the loaner fishing equipment that can now be checked out for free at more than 30 parks and the Kids Discovery Kits (including activi- ties, stories, and tips to help ensure that a child's early outdoor experi- ences will be fun and memorable) that can be checked out for free at 20 parks. On behalf of PATH and Terry and Jim Frilstad, PATH Foster Parents, we would like to thank you very much for making our first annual camp fundraiser a huge success. We served 160 meals and were able to take in $4,144.50 from meal tickets, cash donations, and silent auction. What a success! We are so grateful for all the support that was shown to make this event so successful. We appreciate you and we are very thankful for your donation. You really do make a difference. Your contribution helped raise enough money to be able to send 17 youth to Camp Amnicon. We are also able to tap into a Pohlad grant for 10 more youth, so we are able to send all 27 foster youth to camp. AWESOME! We celebrate all the strengths of families and the opportunity of get- ting to know you a little better. Thank you verymuch for your generosity and spirit. We appreciate your continued support and hope to see you at our second annual camp fundraiser in the spring of2011.
