The Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Westmoreland County Commissioners, as well as our State Senator from the 39th district, have recognized that kids today are not enjoying the outdoors and interest in the outdoors has lessoned in past years. With this in mind, local volunteers, along with Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation, the PA Game Commission, and Dick's Sporting Goods have sponsored the “Mammoth Park Youth Field Day" and "Mammoth Park Pheasant Hunt” to inspire an interest in the great outdoors.
Sponsored by: Local Volunteers, in conjunction with Westmoreland County Parks & Recreation and the Pennsylvania Game Commission
Kids can learn about the great outdoors at the Youth Field Day at Mammoth Park on Saturday, July 30 from 8:00am to 4:00pm. Youth Field Day is a free event sponsored by local volunteers, in conjunction with the Westmoreland County Bureau of Parks and Recreation and the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
Youth ages 8-16 and their parents or guardians can participate in a variety of outdoor activities such as archery, fishing, trap shooting, muzzle loading, and more! Learn how to identify animals including reptiles and amphibians, furbearers and game animals, and take a boating safety course on Mammoth Lake - this event has something for everyone! There will also be several stations featuring local outdoor recreation organizations. A free lunch will be provided to all registered participants.
