(KBRF) - Registration for the 2018 “I Can!” programs that teach camping, paddling, mountain biking and fishing skills at Minnesota state parks and trails has begun.
The "I Can! Series”, helps beginners of all ages learn outdoor skills. The programs start in June and continue through the end of August. Public Information Officer Amy Barret says the programs are ideal for families. "It's like a try before you buy - if your family is interested in camping, but you don't have a tent or sleeping bags yet, this is a way for you to see how it works and experience it">
Some of the programs available this year include, camping, paddling, basics of mountain biking, and fishing. All of these programs come with the equipment provided. The I Can! series also includes the Archery in the Parks programs, which are free and for which no reservations are needed.

The program series is made possible with funding from the Parks and Trails Fund, created after voters approved the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment in November 2008. Visit dnr.state.mn.us.
