The Junior Forest Wardens NL – Giant Squid and the Wild Wanderers – along with more than 20 Junior Forest Wardens from Alberta welcomed dozens of families for the #playoutdoors JFW Open Field day July 14th. It was a fun time for all – activities included shelter building, fire starting with flint and steel, rope-making from grass, outdoor cooking, canoeing, tree planting and so much more! Although the weather was wet no one seemed to mind!

Community organizations including Paddle NL, Association for New Canadians, Sharing our Cultures, the Macmorran Community Centre, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Fishing for Success and the City of St. John’s also supported the event. Also, Chief Warden of Canada, Dave Cullen, arrived in his motor home as part of his cross country tour!
