Outdoor Discovery Program takes on 6th successful year

Posted: Updated:
Despite the heavy winds and clouds, 5th, 6th and 7th graders from the panhandle area spent the day learning about the great outdoors.

Nebraska Game and Parks hosted the 6th annual Scottsbluff Outdoor Discovery Program. The program allows students to participate in hands-on activities that encourage them to be more active outside.

Outdoor education specialist Julia Plugge says this is the first time that many of the children have been exposed to activities of this kind.

"Youth are not exposed to the outdoors—hunting and fishing, boating, nature," says Plugge. "We just want to introduce them to those concepts so that they get outside and participate."

Seven hundred and forty was a record number of students who participated in the program this year.
