Women's Outdoor Experience Program Offered on Sept. 9
POSTED: 08/18/2006
Woman 18 and older are invited to spend a day at the TimberRidge Adventure Center and experience the outdoors as a kid again through a program being presented by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.

The program is called the Women's Outdoor Experience and will take place from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9. Participants will get to experience some of the fun things kids today get to do which weren't available when they were younger. Search for the keyword "women" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.

Participants will begin the day getting to know each other on portions of the 21-element low challenge course and then progress to the new 40-foot climbing tower. After lunch, choose hiking, canoeing, pedal boating, or fishing (anglers will need to provide their own pole and bait and have a Kansas fishing license). Participants can choose their own level of activity from leisurely to strenuous. Every activity is challenge by choice, meaning that no one is expected to do anything they're not comfortable with. Participants will be amazed by the growth they experience in a single day!

The cost for one ten -hour session is $49 for Johnson County residents or $54 for nonresidents. Lunch and snacks are provided. Preregistration is required.

Timber Ridge is located at 12300 South Homestead Lane, Olathe, accessible via an entrance which is separate from and south of the main entrance to Kill Creek Regional Park.

The JCPRD's ACTIVITIES catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pick-up at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information about this program, call Park Naturalist Molly Postlewait at (913) 764-8580 ext. 26. To register, call (913) 831-3359 VOICE or (913) 831-3342 TDD.
