RBC I Colorado Parks and Wildlife, in cooperation with the Northwest Colorado Outfitters Chapter, Colorado Mule Deer Association, Safari Club International and the Wyman Museum, will host a free family Cast and Blast on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wyman Museum in Craig.
The activities will be taught by Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers and volunteers and anyone interested in learning the basics of shooting, archery and fishing in a fun, family environment is encouraged to sign up.
“It’s a great opportunity for an entire family, from young kids to moms and dads, to learn about these popular outdoor activities together,” said District Wildlife Manager Mike Swaro of Maybell.
All angling equipment will be available free of charge, however participants can bring their own fishing equipment if they prefer. Firearms and archery equipment will be provided and participants are asked not to bring their own.
A free lunch will also be served.
For protection from the elements, everyone is reminded to bring layers of clothing, sunscreen and insect repellent.
Anyone 16 and older must have a current fishing license to participate in any fishing event.
