Groups Host Kid's Conservation Day

Sunscreen, bug spray and a child's enthusiasm are nearly all that's needed to attend a National Guard Youth and Kids Conservation Day to be held at Atwood Ponds in Payette on Saturday, June 4 beginning at 8:00am. There is no fee associated with the conservation day which will include lunch, fishing clinics, the Citizens Against Poaching trailer, an archery range, pellet gun and shotgun shooting, a sensory safari trailer, drinks, and snacks. However, registration is required for all participating youngsters between the ages of four and 17. Contact Mark Bell (442-6900) or Leroy Atwood (459-6348) for more information or to register for the conservation day. Volunteers are still needed to assist with the event hosted by the National Wild Turkey Federation, Safari Club International, the Nampa Bow Chiefs, Grizzly Sports, and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. The day is an outgrowth of the desire to express appreciation for Idaho's military personnel. "What better way to show how much we appreciate them than to do something for their children?" event co-organizer Mark Bell noted. "And we want to make these activities and the day itself available to the community as well." For further information regarding the event, or to volunteer, contact Mark Bell at 442-6900.
