outdoor campus-west to hold special events

Pierre, S.D. - The Outdoor Campus-West in Rapid City is hosting special events this summer, including International Mud Day this Saturday, June 24, and Outdoor University on July 8.

The International Mud Day celebration offers opportunities for participants to play in the mud, including mud painting and making seed balls to plant.

Outdoor University is a come-and-try-everything day with activities like kayaking, rock climbing, archery and more.

"Outdoor University and International Mud Day celebrations are fun and educational opportunities for the whole family," says Chad Tussing, director of Outdoor Campus-West. "It’s the perfect time to learn how South Dakota’s resources are managed while trying new outdoor activities - and maybe getting a little messy while doing it!"

Both events are free for the whole family, and no pre-registration is required. The events run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. MT.
