Once again we had different events this past summer for kids and had great attendance!

• The attendance for Outdoor Skills Day was once again outstanding! 300 kids were involved this year which exceeding all expectations! It’s great to see kids want to experience the outdoors and learn skills needed for outdoor activities.

Winterfeld Pit was filled with 150 walleye, 200 perch and 400 crappie. The Big Sioux Recreation Area was recently stocked with 550 walleyes, 600 perch, and 1000 crappie.
