Family Cast and Blast slated for Sunday in Craig
Colorado Parks and Wildlife, in cooperation with the Northwest Colorado Outfitters Chapter, Northwest Ready Mix, Safari Club International and Wyman Museum will host the free, family Cast and Blast event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at Wyman Museum in Craig. Activities will be taught by Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers and volunteers, and anyone interested learning the basics of shooting, archery and fishing in a fun, family environment is encouraged to participate. ”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 Mike Swaro, district wildlife officer of Maybell. Also featured will be a fur exhibit and a black powder firearms demonstration by a Colorado mountain man. All angling equipment will be available for free, but 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 barbecue lunch will also be served. For protection from the elements, everyone is reminded to bring layers of clothing and sunscreen. Anyone 16 and older must have a current fishing license to participate in any fishing event. For questions or to sign-up for the family, contact Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Meeker Service Center at 970-878-6090. Sign up is first-come first-served, and space is limited. Colorado Parks and Wildlife was created by the merger of Colorado State Parks and the Colorado Division of Wildlife, two nationally recognized leaders in conservation, outdoor recreation and wildlife management.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife manages 42 state parks, all of Colorado’s wildlife, more than 300 state wildlife areas and a host of recreational programs.
