Inner City Outings now has Boulder County focus

Kelsey Wilkinson, For the CameraAugust 6, 2008

One event that the Boulder Inner City Outings program has created, with help from a grant, shows children how to do water sampling along Goose Creek. Trout Unlimited sponsors fly-fishing afterward.

The itinerary is now copied nationally after it became one of the most popular outings in the Boulder program.

The group also offers a one-hour, monthly class after school that teaches skills such as using maps, navigating with a compass, weather forecasting and basic leadership skills.
