The North Dakota Game and Fish Department will host thousands of visitors to its Conservation and Outdoors Skills Park July 18-26 at the State Fair in Minot.
Visitors will be treated to an array of activities, exhibits and useful information as the park will be staffed from 1-7 p.m. daily. Pathways to Hunting, Fishing and Trapping are major attractions where fishing, shooting, archery and furtaking are taught to interested kids and adults. Of course, the opportunity to catch a fish brings excitement to the littlest angler.
â€śThe Conservation and Outdoors Skills Park is a really good stop for the entire family to learn about the outdoors, and to participate in hands-on activities that might just turn a youngster and others on to hunting and fishing in North Dakota,â€ť said outreach biologist Greg Gullickson. â€śWe have some great opportunities in North Dakota, and I certainly encourage people to come out and give it a try.â€ť
In addition, Gullickson said guests should visit the live fish display, or stop by the furbearer exhibit and discuss trapping with the experts, or relax and enjoy native prairie plantings.
â€śThe best thing about the whole Game and Fish area is the price, itâ€™s all free,â€ť he added.
The Conservation and Outdoors Skills Park is located on the north end of the grounds near the All Seasons Arena.
