DENVER, Colo. — Come join the Colorado Division of Wildlife and Colorado State Parks for Wild Times at St. Vrain State Park, Saturday, September 25! This family outdoor skills event offers an opportunity for newcomers to learn about a sampling of outdoor recreation in Colorado.

“September is a perfect time to get outside and enjoy all that Colorado has to offer,” said John Koehler, District Wildlife Officer for the Boulder area. “Bring the kids and try some archery, boating, shooting, and wildlife identification in a safe, no pressure environment. Family fun does not have to cost a fortune!”

Outdoor activities, skills-building opportunities, and wildlife appreciation will round out this day of leisure at one of our state park jewels. Registration is $5 per person and is limited to 100 attendees. A daily State Parks Pass ($6 per vehicle) or a yearly pass will be required and can be purchased at the park on the day of the event. Participants will receive instruction in the fine arts of outdoor recreation and leave the event ready to get outside with confidence.

St. Vrain State Park is a family-friendly destination for visitors seeking a peaceful and simple outdoor break. It’s easy to reach along I-25 between Denver and Ft. Collins at Highway 119 (exit 240). $6 per vehicle entry fee required, or State Parks pass accepted. This nature and people-friendly park offers 604 acres of land and 152 acres of water split among several ponds.
