Families looking for a fun afternoon filled with outdoor activities are invited to attend the first annual Teddy Roosevelt Family Day on Sunday, Sept. 30 at McDowell Dam just east of Bismarck.
The free event runs from 1-5 p.m. and families can come and go at any time. It features many hands-on activities including archery, BB gun shooting, fishing, canoeing, animal tracks, duck identification, plant identification, camping, games, prizes and more.
The first 500 kids who attend also receive a free Teddy Roosevelt patch.
Organized by area Boy Scout, Girl Scout and 4-H organizations, Teddy Roosevelt Family Day is sponsored by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department and North Dakota Chapter of the Wildlife Society. In addition, a number of local wildlife groups have stepped forward to assist with the event.
