The whole family is welcome at an upcoming Running Wild 5K walk/run on Saturday, June 30 from 9 a.m. – noon at E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area near Corvallis.
Participants can try several different outdoor skills at stations along the trail including: trap shooting with a shotgun; archery at the E.E. Wilson Archery Range; fly casting and aquatic education; identifying wildlife tracks, bird identification with Salem Audubon Society and boating safety with the Oregon Marine Board. Outdoor activities are supervised by ODFW staff, certified hunter and angler education volunteers, and volunteers from other organizations.
The 5K trail will be marked and participants can visit the outdoor skills stations in any order they choose. All outdoor skills events are optional so do one or do them all. Runners and walkers may also choose not to do the outdoor events and participate in the 5K event only.
Proceeds from the Running Wild event will benefit Governor’s Toy Drive, which helps children in need throughout Oregon
For safety reasons, no dogs are allowed at the Running Wild event.
