Children ages 8 to 14 can register now for the 18th annual Tioga County Youth Field Day, which will be held Aug. 18 at Ives Run Recreation Area, Hammond Lake.
The event offers boys and girls from any county in the state a chance to try their hand at a variety of outdoor activities. At least 10 educational stations will be set up, covering topics such as orienteering, rifle, shotgun, fly and spin fishing, turkey calling and wildlife identification.
The event is free, but parents must register children in advance. Also, a parent or guardian must accompany children during the day.
The day begins at 8 a.m. Lunch will be served later to everyone in attendance, and children will receive a hat, T-shirt and goodie bag.
To register, call Dina Henninger, park ranger for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, at 835-0113.
Signing up is also possible by sending needed information to Youth Field Day Registration, P.O. Box 51, Middlebury Center, PA 16935.
Information needed includes children's names, ages, addresses, genders, home phone numbers, shirt sizes and parent signatures.
