Ponca State Park To Provide Weekend Activities

PONCA – As the weekend promises great weather, a northeast Nebraska park will be hosting several events for the family.

According to a release from Ponca State Park, limited education programming will be available this weekend to help attendees enjoy their visit. Plan on pre-registering for each program or call or visit the park office as sign ups start at 8 a.m. the day of the pogrom and close 30 minutes prior to the start time.

Ponca State Park will be offering introduction to slingshot Friday and provide information about the common constellations. Later in the day Friday, ‘Campfire Cooking’ will take place.

Moving into Saturday, introduction to archery will open the day followed by ‘Critter Corner’ which will showcase a snapshot of different types of wildlife that are found along the Missouri River. Also, join Ponca Naturalists as they teach survival techniques using a keychain made from paracord. Closing out Saturday afternoon will feature ‘Oreo Moon Phases’.

A ‘Become A Junior Ranger’ event will then take place Sunday afternoon. Make sure to complete the activities in the Missouri River Book and earn your badge. Pick up the book at the northwest activity shed behind the Resource and Education Center.

Ponca State Park officials ask that everyone recreate responsibly. Their ability to keep the park open is dependent upon the compliance of their guests with social spacing and group size recommendation.
