VA State Parks To Host 3 Outdoors Summits

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - More than 100 young people are expected to attend three outdoors summits hosted by Virginia State Parks this summer.
    
The three-day summits will be held June 7-9 at Natural Tunnel State Park in Duffield, July 12-14 at First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach and Aug. 1-3 at Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield.
    
Virginia State Parks is partnering with Outdoor Nation and America's State Parks Foundation's Ambassador Program to hold the summits.
    
Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 28.
    
State parks director Joe Elton says in a news release that the summits are an opportunity for outdoor-minded young people to gather and obtain information that they can use to inspire others to get outside.
