PONCA – If you missed out on early week activities at Ponca State Park, make plans to join park naturalists for the next two days with more events planned.
Located on the banks of the Missouri River, four miles north of Ponca, Ponca State Park will offer a pair of introduction courses from 9 – 11 a.m.
Wednesday’s course will feature archery for those five years of age and older while Thursday will focus on an introduction to .22 rifles for those 10 and older. Equipment is provided during both courses with cost being $1 per six arrows on Wednesday and $3 per 10 rounds the next day.
Also, join Ponca State Park between 1 – 3 p.m. Wednesday in the museum by meeting at the Resource and Education Center during a free event. Park-goers will learn about the two biggest drivers of the economy in the 1800s, fur trapping and steamboat transportation. A park naturalist will be available to demonstrate the hands-on exhibits and answer any questions.
Then, Thursday at 1 p.m. will feature ‘Lost in the Woods Story and Stroll’. Attendees will learn about animals that love getting lost in the woods while taking a small stroll around the Education Center. This event is limited to 25 participants and, if interested, can meet in the Resource and Education Center’s bird viewing room located at the north end of the river museum.
