KEARNEY — The Fort Kearny Outdoor Discovery Program has scheduled several events for dogs on May 11.
They include a dock jumping competition and a timed retriever maze. There also will be several water stations and ponds to keep pets cool.
Family activities on that day include shooting sports, kayaking, fishing, campground games, sling shots and trapping. There also will be a s’mores-eating contest.
The spring celebration of Nebraska’s outdoors is free and runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A park entry permit is required.
