State park fills summer with outdoor fun for kids, families

Don’t sit there and tell me you’re bored.

Highline Lake State Park is making it easy to fill your summer with outdoor adventure and learning (listen, this is much more fun than school, believe me).

Wednesdays are the Highline Lake Summer of Outdoor Fun, a youngster-oriented series of mornings fill with classes, workshops and hands-on education about “wildlife, birds, the environment, plants, dinosaurs, how to fish, how to use a compass and lots more,” as a parks spokesperson said.

Saturdays and Sundays are family time, featuring wildlife, environment, Leave No Trace, boating tips and nights in the campground watching the stars.

So get up and get moving. It’s a long summer and there is plenty to do.
