5th Annual Free Get Outdoors Day Colorado Springs
Every year, PPCTU participates in CPW’s festival for the National “Get Outdoors Day” in Colorado Springs. We set up our booth, hand out our children’s game about the life cycle of the Greenback Cutthrout Trout and talk to people about river habitat conservation.
The most significant aspect of this presence, especially in Colorado Springs, is to inform people about the Greenback Cutthrout Trout that live in Bear Creek in Jones Park because El Paso County proposes new trails and recreational use of that river habitat every year. It is an ongoing conflict that PPCTU can most effectively address by pushing out information to the public.
Being in this booth is important.
This is also a good time to bring kids and interface with some new opportunities to Get Outdoors!
It is a family friendly, free outdoor recreation festival allowing everyone to sample a variety of activities. Prospect Lake will be lined with families fishing using free gear from Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The water will be filled with rafts, canoes and paddle boards. Kids can shoot air rifles and .22s, throw hatchets, learn archery, try the climbing walls, crawl all over our “Touch a Truck” display and a lot more. See? Family kind of stuff!
It will be all day at Prospect Lake.
