Weber State brings arts and science to local parks

OGDEN, Utah — Weber State University has a pair of summer programs to offer free opportunities for kids to learn about art and science at different parks in Ogden.

“Our goal is to offer free summer activities to youth and parents who are generally considered underserved,” said Todd Oberndorfer, Arts in the Parks co-director, in a news release sent to FOX 13. “As this program reaches large numbers of youth within walking distance of their homes, Arts in the Parks is able to serve many who wouldn’t otherwise participate in a Weber State sponsored program.”
