DEP's Free "WILD Outdoor Expo" Set for Sept. 14 and 15


Everyone,
I thought this might be something some of the Scouts and families might like to attend:

DEP's Free "WILD Outdoor Expo" Set for Sept. 14 and 15

The fourth annual New Jersey WILD Outdoor Expo, a celebration of the state's bountiful natural resources and rich outdoor heritage, is scheduled for the weekend of Sept. 14 and 15.  At the Expo the public will be offered a welcoming hand to the state's great outdoor venues and experiences.

The Expo, to be held rain or shine at the Colliers Mills Wildlife Management Area in Jackson Township, will include classes, lessons, demonstrations and exhibits on a host of outdoor activities. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

A host of environmental and conservation exhibits, demonstrations and seminars are planned. Participants, ranging from avid outdoorsmen to novice adventurers of all ages, can learn about and try a wide variety of activities at the Expo. Included will be fishing, kayaking, camping skills, rock climbing, wildlife watching, shooting sports, geocaching and plenty more.

For more information, view the NJ DEP news release.  For directions to the Colliers Mills WMA and more information, including a video tour of the 2011 Expo and a complete listing of 2013 programs, visit: www.wildoutdoorexpo.com/
