Wyoming Arts Council roster artists Fireants and Paul Taylor will be part of the activities at the Summer Outdoor Slam Kids Xtreme event at Curt Gowdy State Park, June 6-7. This free event gives kids the opportunity to learn the correct and safe way to participate in such activities as archery, mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, orienteering and many others. Additionally, children and their families can fish for free on Saturday, watch various demonstrations or go horseback riding (for a small fee).
In addition to the various outdoor activities on Saturday, the Fireants from Buffalo will perform from 4-7 p.m., and Paul Taylor will provide hands-on didgeridoo making workshops from 9 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. Saturday’s activities will culminate at 7:30 p.m. with a Moonwalk moonlight hike provided by the U.S. Forest Service.
