JAMESTOWN — Pymatuning State Park hosts a pair of events in December and January, starting with a “Go Girls Archery” event on Dec. 21 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at environmental classroom in the Jamestown Marina.
Girls 10 to 15 years old are invited to learn archery and then put their new skills to work as they walk through a practice target range. Classroom instruction will be followed by hands-on field practice. Class size is limited and the registration deadline is Dec. 12.
The park also holds a “Get Out! Get Healthy! Snowshoe Hike” on Jan. 1 at 10 a.m. at the environmental classroom in the Jamestown Marina. Enjoy a 1.5-mile hike around the shores of Pymatuning.
Organizers will incorporate birding and winter plant identification into the walk and healthy snacks after the hike. If there is snow, those who participate will snowshoe — with no snow, there will be a hike. Contact the Park Office to reserve snowshoes — or bring your own.
