The Friends of the Norfork National Fish Hatchery in conjunction with the Norfork National Fish Hatchery will hold the 6th annual "Hatchery Outdoor Adventure," Saturday, September 10th, 2016, at the Norfork National Fish Hatchery from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. The Hatchery Outdoor Adventure is introduces youths to the outdoors and teaches them something about the outdoors, outdoor safety, and the environment.
Local organizations and businesses will be sponsoring a multitude of fun and hands on outdoor activities such as fly casting, B-B gun shooting, how to identify insects, how to navigate with a compass, and more. Among the activities will be fishing on Dry Run Creek (limited to youths 15 years old and under), little kids raceway fishing, hatchery tours, archery, Japanese fish painting, and spin casting to a target along with other events sponsored by our participating partners.
Each youth registers will receive a "Passport" to take with them to any of the events they would like to try. The sponsor will sign off on their passport and have them participate in their activity where they can have fun doing and learning. Admission is free. If you’d like to volunteer to help make this year's event the best ever, contact Jay Chafin at 479-461-9040.
