Here’s some resources to keep your family active all year long.
Archery, in one form or another, has been around for somewhere between 10,000 – 40,000 years (probably longer). The bow and arrow was first used for hunting and was later used as an effective long distance weapon in warfare and was an important military and hunting skill before the development of firearms. Archery also figured prominently in mythology of many cultures and fiction e.g. Robin Hood, Cupid, Legolas and Green Arrow.
Today archery is still used as a tool for hunting but also enjoys recognition worldwide as a team and individual sport.
This weekend think about a day hike. Hiking is an outdoor activity which consists of walking over natural terrain or on a trail, in mountainous or other scenic areas for recreational purposes. A day hike refers to a hike that can be completed in a single day – not requiring an overnight camp.
Spring is the perfect time for hiking. The weather is warming up and more comfortable, you get to experience wildflowers blooming and fresh air.
Here are some resources to help you get your trail legs.
Go view some wild life while there is still some left to see! There are still plenty of places to see wildlife including national wildlife refuges. You can still see elephant seals, sea otters or turtle hatchings in their natural habitats. You can also seek out flyways that feature water fowl, raptor or butterfly migrations.
