KDWP ANNOUNCES JUNE STATE PARK EVENTS

Free Park Entrance Days, other events highlight month
PRATT -- Each month, Kansas state parks conduct special events, some in conjunction with Free Park Entrance Days, some to celebrate a special historical event or geological attribute of an individual park, and others just for entertainment. Each park sets its own dates for these events, including Free Park Entrance Days. In addition, statewide Free Fishing Days are June 3-4.

Events are diverse and may include anything from a marathon race to boating courses and equestrian events. Many are educational and all are designed to enhance the fun of visiting Kansas state parks.
