On Friday and Saturday, August 26 and 27, the Upper Wabash Interpretive Services provides educational activities centered around fishing, hunting, and firearms use for area youth.
Friday at 7 p.m., join us for a tracking program. Camp overnight, or return on Saturday for the remainder of the sessions.
Saturday sessions begin at 9 a.m. with a Fishing Clinic. Outdoor cooking demonstrations and a cook-off are scheduled before lunch, and the J. Edward Roush Shooting Range features hands-on firearms, tracking, wildlife, archery and shotgun shooting education. A generous grant from the NRA Foundation, Inc. has aided in the purchase of supplies and safety equipment.
Director Marvin McNew, Upper Wabash Interpretive Services said, "Many families are interested in providing firearm safety training and fishing education to their children. We also see youth organizations such as Cub and Boy Scouts and American Heritage Girls clubs that like to attend our programming at Roush to fulfill badge requirements in outdoor skills."
Families or youth clubs are required to pre-register by calling 260-468-2127. A $5/person fee provides both days events for them, overnight camping fees, and a patch. Participants should bring their own food and drink.
All children must be with a responsible adult. No childcare provided.
