Saturday in the Park
July 27, 2018 @ 9:01 pm
Enjoy these planned Saturday activities at Beech Fork State Park.
11:00 a.m.: Cardboard Duct Tape boat races: Bring your homemade boat and meet the Naturalist at the boat launch area to have your boat inspected, and then race across the lake for free camping. Remember, your boat and paddles can only be made of cardboard and duct tape, and nothing else. You must attach a rope with a one gallon jug or other inflatable to the boat to ensure we can remove debris if the boat sinks. Fastest time wins free camping, most creative boat wins free camping, and there is a secret category and prize too!
2:00 p.m. Craft: Hobo Fishing Pole: Meet the Naturalist in the activities room to make your own hobo style fishing pole that really works. You can even use it in the 4:00 p.m. fishing contest if you’re adventurous enough!
4:00 p.m. Fishing Contest: Kids 14 and under should bring their fishing poles to the dock behind the boat rentals to try and win ice cream! YPP
6:00 p.m. Beech Fork Bugs: Meet the Naturalist in the activities room to see some cool bugs, and then go for a short walk with him to catch some and look at up close! Maybe we’ll see some moths also. YPP
