Navajo State Park offers native plant hike and Play-Doh fish fun for kids

Bring your kids to Navajo State Park Saturday, Aug. 25, at 9 a.m. so the youngsters can make Play-Doh fish.

Enjoy swimming, fishing and other activities during the day.

At 4 p.m., the kids can join a Native Plant Hike along Navajo Lake.

Each program will start at the Rosa Campground Visitors Center Building.

Navajo State Park offers some of the best fishing in the region, and kids will learn about fish anatomy and make their own real or mythical species of fish to keep.

At the 4 p.m. program, kids will explore native plants and their uses to ancient people. This interactive class begins with a nature walk along Navajo Lake and then learning about plants like chokecherry, yucca and pinon. The nature trail is dirt and hikers need appropriate shoes and clothing, sunscreen, plus water.

Anyone interested is welcome to attend. All events in the park are free with a Colorado State Parks pass — either a $7 day pass or a season pass. Call 883-2208 for more information or log on to the park website at
