Kids to Parks Day at Quarry Park Saturday
Stearns County's Quarry Park will be hosting Activity Day Saturday May 21st from 9 a.m. - noon. The event is free and open to the public. Stearns County Park Operations Coordinator Sarah Weed and Stearns County Commissioner Joe Perske joined me on WJON. The event is designed to get kids and families to local parks. The event is called "Kids to Parks Day" and will feature the following activities:
T.H.E. Great River Archery Club
Self-guided Derick Tour
Soil and Water Conservation District: aquatic invertebrates
Emergency Management: extreme weather
St Cloud Disc Golf Club
The events will be available for kids and families to try with some instruction and supervision from the county staff. Weed says the Sheriff's department and Soil and Conservation District will be there to illustrate macro invertebrates. Weed says there is no cost to park and no donation is expected for attendees.
