Bringing the Northwest Outdoors to the Washington State Fair

Posted on September 1, 2015 at 12:29 PM by Allan Warren

Each year, the District joins other outdoor and recreation groups to make up the Northwest Outdoors Building at the Washington State Fair, which will run from September 11th – 27th at the Puyallup Fairgrounds.  While you’re taking a break from scones, roller coasters and skee ball, stop by the NWOB to enjoy a piece of the great outdoors.  The building features native plant displays, a kids’ fishing pond, archery range, snowshoe track and several other interesting attractions.  New to the building this year is a photo booth, where fairgoers can use props and attire to create the ultimate Northwest picture with their family and friends.  You can then use tags and social media to share with everyone how much fun you’re having at the Fair.  The Conservation District will have a booth once again where our staff and volunteers will talk with fairgoers about what we’ve been up to, our upcoming volunteer opportunities and workshops, and other interesting topics.  Be sure to visit the Northwest Outdoors Building during your annual visit to the Washington State Fair and see all that it has in store for people of all ages.

If you would like to volunteer and receive free passes to the fair as a reward, email Chris Towe: christophert@piercecountycd.org.
