It should be a nice weekend for outdoor activities so get excited about the great outdoors and get active!Â In celebration of its 100th Anniversary, L.L.Bean has begun a year-long mission to re-ignite Americaâ€™s love of the outdoors.Â Join the company for Discovery Day this Saturday, April 14th from 10 a.m. â€“ 2 p.m. at the Boston Common ( Corner of Boylston & Tremont Streets)
Expert guides from L.L.Beanâ€™s Outdoor Discovery SchoolsÂ® will lead various family-friendly outdoor activities on the Common.Â All activities are FREE. You and your kids can try fly-casting, knot-tying and several backyard-style games.Â They will have a mock campsite and you can finally figure out how to set up that tent!Â Â Plus you may spot the L.L. Bean Bootmobile!
Mayor Menino will also be on hand at 9 a.m. to announce Bostonâ€™s Summer Kayak Series. This is a free program which will provide local children and families with the opportunity to try kayaking.Â The program will kick off on June 16 in Millennium Park in West Roxbury and will continue with events on June 23, July 14 and July 21. Kids can learn basic skills and safety, followed by a trip out onto the Charles River on a kayak! The kayaking sessions will be open to Boston residents ages eight years and older. How fun!
Enjoy the great outdoors this weekend!
