The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has cooked up a program to help people improve their outdoor cuisine.

The presentation, led by Commission outdoor education specialist Amanda Filipi, will be at the Chadron State Park Trading Post’s fire pit on Friday, July 25, at 5 p.m. Participants can expect to dine on a delicious meal after learning to cook it using techniques such as Dutch oven, foil and open fire.

Filipi encourages people to sign up soon. The registration deadline is Thursday, July 24, and a minimum number of participants is required to make the program happen. There is a fee of $5 per person to cover the cost of supplies. A park permit, available for purchase at www.outdoornebraska.org or at the park, is required for vehicles entering the premises.

For more information or to register, contact Filipi at 308-436-3777.
