No Child Left Indoors
August 13, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
Join the Hancock Park District and Pheasants Forever for a morning filled with youth outdoor recreation activities as they test their skills and talents. No Child Left Indoors is part of a national movement to reach a generation of young people fixated on electronics, and to get them outdoors. This event is focused on reversing the trend of inactivity and obesity in today’s youth and actively engaging them in outdoor recreation activities. These outdoor experiences will educate youth about the importance of nature and conservation with hopes of fostering tomorrow’s leaders and conservation-minded citizens. Activities will include a nature program, fishing, archery, canoeing & kayaking, BB and shotgun shooting, and more. Light refreshments will be provided by Whitetails Unlimited.
Meet at the Discovery Center at the Oakwoods Nature Preserve by 9am. This event is recommended for children ages 6 – 17 with an adult. Register the day of the event between 8 am – 9 am at the Discovery Center before the event starts or preregister by emailing email@example.com.
