6th Annual TADO Event a Success!


On Saturday, August 2 the 6th annual Take a Day OFF* "*Outdoor Family Fun" event was held on the Mississippi River north of Sartell  All in attendance had a chance to have fun and get re-connected to our natural world. There were a number of free outdoor recreational opportunities to take part in: casting and fishing from shore, paddling a canoe and traveling down the Mississippi, riding in a pontoon and watching DNR demonstrate fish survey (electrofishing) techniques, jakes aim range, archery, live reptiles up close, building a birdhouse to take home, fun with casting, finding out about the water in our world, and more!  It was definitely a day OFF; Outdoor Family Fun.
