Stearns County Parks is participating in National Park Trust Kids to Parks Day.

“Organized by National Park Trust, the mission of Kids to Parks Day is to foster future outdoor enthusiasts and help with developing the next generation of park stewards by engaging kids in memorable outdoor experiences. While discovering and exploring our parks, kids learn about park stewardship, outdoor recreation, STEM, and the history of our country and its amazing national treasures – because kids need parks and parks need kids!”

To celebrate Kids to Parks Day at Quarry Park, there will be stations from various community sponsors throughout the park with different activities for kids. Plans are still in the works but so far you can learn more about:

  • Quarry Park and the other Stearns County Parks
  • Archery
  • Macroinvertebrates
  • Liberty Derrick and the Granite Industry
  • Fishing
  • Rave: the emergency weather alert system
  • Geocaching
  • Being Kind to Our Environment

Free Parking at Quarry Park for the day.
