No Comments Share:

California Waterfowl Association is wrapping up their third Hunter Conservation Youth Camp of the summer at their Grizzly Ranch facility on Grizzly Island.  These five days camps host kids from 10-15 years of age, and are jam-packed with a full gamut of outdoor activities such as fishing, archery, shotgun, rifle, kayaking, duck banding, hunter education, and more.  This is the fifth year in a row that the NWTF has helped to sponsor this fantastic program, and we couldn’t be happier to do so!

The Wednesday of each camp is designated as “turkey day” and NWTF volunteers and staff come in to lead a full day of fun activities.  The kids learn about the return of the wild turkey from near extinction, Turkey 101, shotgun patterning, turkey hunting safety, box call building, and more!
