National Get Outdoors Day, free admission at Fort Vancouver June 9

Bring the family to the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site Visitor Center on Saturday, June 9, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., and celebrate National Get Outdoors Day. Smokey Bear, Woodsy Owl, and Ranger Rick will be on hand to meet guests. Drawings for prizes will occur during the day with a chance to win a grand prize worth $500 donated by REI. Bring the kids to catch some fish for dinner, conquer the climbing wall, try archery and disc golf, or cook over a campfire, just as the people who built Fort Vancouver did. This year’s event is a blend of Get Outdoors Day and two National Park Service events, NW National Park Family Day and the Brigade Encampment. National Get Outdoors Day is also a national “fee-free” day, and entrance to the Fort will be free from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Learn more by clicking here, here and here.
