WGA to send Get Outdoors! Wisconsin geocaching to DNR
||CLOSED - Published
The WGA will submit a proposal to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to develop a statewide Get Outdoors! Wisconsin promotion centered on the family activity of Geocaching.
The partnership will develop a program designed to encourage children and families to get outdoors and visit Wisconsinís state parks. The WGA will place a Get Outdoors! Geocache in each of Wisconsinís state parks. Advertising of the program will be done by press release, by inclusion on the DNR webpage, inclusion on the WGA webpage and by social networking sites.
The goals of this partnership are to promote health and wellness in Wisconsin children and families, promote appreciation of the environment, provide opportunities for outdoor recreation, and encourage families to explore Wisconsinís state parks and forests.
The proposal details are itemized in the Get Outdoors-draft 7 document now available in the board forum as an attachment. Once approved, the draft 7 will be retitled to remove the draft language.
