DNR and 4-H events bring education and entertainment
Last weekend brought two events for kids to learn and spend time enjoying the outdoors. On Saturday, Hodag Park hosted the annual Family Fishing Fun Day, an event sponsored by Rhinelander 4-H. It was a chance for kids of all ages and their families to get out and fish, with booths and stations teaching all the necessary skills. Weather was perfect for the event, with temps in the 70s and sunshine all morning.
Mother nature wasn’t quite as cooperative Sunday, when the DNR put on their Youth Heritage Day, though the turnout belied the rain and clouds. Half a dozen stations taught kids all the skills of an outdoorsman, from trapping and shooting basics to archery and hunting finesse.
