According to Marisa Futral from ADCNR, “This fun filled weekend event is a great place to practice social distancing by learning fun outdoor activities in a safe non-threatening environment. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to shoot, drive a boat, or ATV,  learn to fish, camp, or canoe we have classes for you!”
