Come Kid Around With Us at Get Outdoors Day, June 8, at Powderhorn Park!

Geared for children ages 4-14 and their families, this year’s Twin Cities Get Outdoors Day activities include archery, camping, canoeing, climbing wall, craft booths, fishing, fly-tying, tree planting, water safety, Zumba, and so much more. Join us at Powderhorn Park for a great evening of family fun!

New to GO Day this year is goat yoga, which brings together the sweetness and gentle unpredictability of goats with the physical and mental restoration of yoga. About five goats will be joining yogis in a fenced-in outdoor “studio” for four 30-minute sessions of all-ages and all-abilities vinyasa yoga. Cost for goat yoga is $20/session.
