Abilene Outdoor Adventures encourages people to get outside


ABILENE, Texas - Saturday's sunshine presented a great chance to spend some time outside for Abilene Outdoor Adventures.

It also coincided with National Free Fishing Day.

There was fishing at Nelson Park along with wildlife and plant education activities.

All of the fun was to encourage more people to spend time outside.

"[It's] just taking that chance to just you know explore something you're interested in even if it's just the inkling of curiosity," said Michael Homer, Jr., a district fisheries biologist with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. "You know, get outdoors because you may love it."

The Abilene Zoo also celebrated World Oceans Day.
