Cossatot River State Park has several upcoming activities that will introduce area residents to the beauty of the state park and one program is a three-day Eco-Adventure Camp, Tuesday, July 24th through Thursday, July 26th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
Campers will take a journey through the water cycle and learn how the Cossatot River benefits people, plants and wildlife. The camp will also include an off-site session at the Gilliam Lake and to the Wickes City Water Department where campers will learn how our drinking water goes from stream to sink.
The cost is $50 per camper and the fee includes a gift bag, daily snacks, and lunch on the last day. Contact the park at 870-385-2201 to make reservations.
Park Interpreter Shelly Flanary stated the park would pick up campers in Wickes at the Smith’s parking lot.
This weekend, park guests can join an interpreter for a snorkeling scavenger hunt on Saturday, July 21st from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., a fishing frenzy on Sunday from 10:30 to 11L30 a.m. and water town ball on Sunday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
