Dakota Explorers program

Each weekend during the summer, participating state parks host Dakota Explorers programs. These programs include fun activities such as nature hikes, crafts, bird watching, camping skills, bug hunts, water games, and more! They are a great way to get the kids outdoors and learning about the state’s natural, cultural, and historical resources. Take a look at our Dakota Explorers page for more information on the program.
