Saturday, July 18, Sleepy Hollow State Park in Clinton County and the Oldsmobile Outdoor Club will be hosting a Youth Outdoor Education Day at the Archery Range area, a quarter mile inside the park entrance.
Youth will have the opportunity to participate in many hands-on activities: archery, hiking, geocaching, casting and pellet gun shooting. Quality Deer Management will be onsite with an antler display. Persons can learn trapping basics from a local trapper, see how the DNR ages deer and view many ice fishing displays from around the world.
The event will run 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is free to attend. All vehicles entering the park must have a Recreation Passport. The Recreation Passport may be purchased at the park the day of the event for $11 for Michigan registered vehicles. Parking will be located in the East Picnic Area with access to the event for handicapped individuals.
