ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Family-oriented programs resume this weekend at Minnesota’s state parks as they return to normal after the state government shutdown.

The programs include an overnight “I Can Camp!” program at Wild River State Park, a guided canoe trip on the Rum River as part of the I Can Paddle! program, and a bicycle safety and maintenance clinic at Fort Snelling State Park.

I Can Camp! provides equipment and instruction on how to camp in a tent. I Can Paddle! provides equipment and instruction for canoeing on lakes and rivers.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ online calendar has a complete schedule.

All but two of the 74 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas have reopened. Camden and St. Croix state parks remain closed due to storm damage.
