These days it seems young folk spend more time indoors in front of computers than climbing trees or catching frogs. There is a nonprofit in town whose goal it is to get kids outdoors. For the past decade, the Wilderness Youth Project’s (WYP) mission has been to provide “confidence, health, and a life-long love of learning for young people and families through active outdoor experiences and mentoring,” according to its Web site. To celebrate its 10th birthday, WYP is throwing a party replete with live music, outdoor activities, and birthday cupcakes. The event is open to the public and takes place Sunday, October 4, from 11:10 a.m.-4:10 p.m. A presentation is at 1:10 p.m., with cupcakes at 2:10 p.m. Check it out at Skofield Park on Las Canoas Road. Tickets are $10 for adults and 10 cents for kids. Reserve your tickets in advance at Call 964-8096 for more information.
