This Saturday, June 11, is National Get Outdoors Day. To celebrate the event, Minnesota’s state parks are offering free admission into all state parks. Vehicle permits will be waived at all 74 state parks and recreation areas on Saturday.

There will be events held for people of all ages taking place throughout the state. One such event will be grand opening celebrations for the new 25-mile mountain bike trail system at Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area. There will also be plenty of fishing programs in conjunction with Take-A-Kid Fishing Weekend.

The Department of Natural Resources says that the goal is to introduce new visitors to the parks and trails throughout the state.

National Get Outdoors Day tries to introduce youth into the great outdoors.
