The Big Bear Discovery Center will, this Saturday, June 13, offer a number of fun outdoor activities as the San Bernardino National Forest Association celebrates National Get Outdoors Day, which is featured at 60 different sites on public lands throughout the U.S. Our local “Go Day” features a number of activities, many of them designed for youth, that launch from the DC, including the 9:30am Seven Summits Youth Challenge; this free hike to Bertha Peak with 12-year-old mountaineer Jordan Romero is a challenge for 9 to 15-year-olds of all fitness levels. Other programs offered at the Discovery Center on Saturday, between 9am and 3pm, include gold panning, guided nature walks, small fry fishing, and birdhouse building. At 11:30am, there will be a group fun run along the Alpine Pedal Path, and this is open to all runners and walkers, as well as parents with strollers, those in wheelchairs, and leashed dogs. The SBNFA’s Go Day wraps with an outdoor concert featuring Eagles tribute band The Long Run at 7pm; adult tickets are $20 each, $10 for teens, and free for children 12 and under. Proceeds from the June 13 concert will benefit the Lighthouse Project‘s Peace Gardens program and Forest Aid.
