Bewabic State Park will host a “GO-Get Outdoors” Explore the Outdoors event on Saturday, June 7, beginning at 12 p.m.

This event is designed to encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to get outdoors and try something new. Activities are planned to introduce visitors to new outdoor experiences such as orienteering and the basics of camping. There will also be a guided hike, a muskie fishing demonstration, a nature scavenger hunt, and more “fishing in the parks.”

June 7 and 8 is Free Fishing Weekend across Michigan. This event will give visitors a chance to try their hand at fishing without having to purchase a fishing license.

Presenters will include volunteers from Crystal Bait Marine, Lake Superior State University and park staff.
