Kids in the Wausau area are trying something new outdoors today.

The 10th annual Sporting Heritage Youth Day gave kids the opportunity to learn about archery, trap shooting, and even fly fishing.

Close to 200 kids got to take part with their parents at the Wausau School Forest.

Numerous sporting clubs were also on hand to help educate them about the recreational resources located in Central Wisconsin.

"Today there are so many kids that are involved in video games and quite frankly sports too. We have the football season going on, and soccer, and a lot of that and a lot of kids are involved in that, but we are just trying to spark an interest in the outdoors, said Randy Falstad.

Falstad is a volunteer coordinator for the event.

This year kids had more than 20 outdoor themed stations to try out all at no cost to families.
