The North Dakota Game and Fish Department, local wildlife clubs and other sponsors will usher youngsters into fall during the sixth annual Youth Outdoor Festival in Minot.

The event is Thursday, Sept. 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds, Game and Fish Pond area.

Department outreach biologist Greg Gullickson, Minot, said this event illustrates the importance of wildlife clubs introducing youth to all the different outdoor activities North Dakota has to offer. “The Minot area clubs are a showcase of different groups getting together with one common goal – providing today’s youth with fishing and hunting opportunities in the outdoors,” Gullickson said.

Kids will have an opportunity to experience a number of activities, including archery, fishing, waterfowl and upland game. “It doesn’t matter if your passion is ducks, deer, fish or pheasants,” Gullickson said. “The Conservation and Outdoor Skills Center at the fair provides the perfect setting.”

Prizes will be awarded and food provided for young outdoor enthusiasts.
