Free passes aim to drive outdoor interest

There are no shortages of outdoor activities on the peninsula, and people will get a free shot to test the waters on June 5th and June 6th. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will have their “Free Fun Weekend.” People will be able to fish without a license, and can also check out state parks without a registration sticker. DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says this is the ideal weekend for people who want to give the outdoors a try. 



Kratcha hopes that people try the Free Fun weekend and enjoy it enough to purchase a license or a state park pass. One thing he does mention is that the Fun Free weekend applies to outdoor activities but not to recreational vehicles, like boats. He reminds boaters to check registration before going out.
