SALEM, Ore.—The whole family is welcome at an upcoming Running Wild 5K walk/run on Saturday, June 30 from 9 a.m. - noon at E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area near Corvallis.

Participants can try several different outdoor skills at stations along the trail including: trap shooting with a shotgun; archery at the E.E. Wilson Archery Range; fly casting and aquatic education; identifying wildlife tracks, bird identification with Salem Audubon Society and boating safety with the Oregon Marine Board.
