Summer is finally here and it is time to get connected to the great outdoors! Delta County residents are fortunate to be surrounded by some great public lands and waterways. So come check out the gateway for summer fun and adventures at the Outdoor Heritage Day, Saturday, June 1, in Delta's Confluence Park. Start the day off competing at the youth fishing derby from 8:30 to 10 a.m. hosted by the Gunnison Gorge Anglers. No fishing license is required as it is National Free Fishing Week, but don't forget your fishing poles. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. over 45 exhibitors made up of outdoor groups, sports groups, governmental agencies, and outdoor related businesses, all dedicated partners with a passion for the outdoors, will be providing hands-on experiences and safety demonstrations by our local emergency responders. Lunch is being provided for everyone by the Elks Lodge and other great sponsors. T-shirts were donated by Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and there will be lots of door prizes.
This event is free and is hosted by the City of Delta Parks & Recreation along with generous community sponsors and event exhibitors to make this a day to remember. So come on down with an appetite for outdoor fun!
