Outdoorama at the Rez

The Mississippi Wildlife Federation hosts Outdoorama at the Rez on Saturday, September 28, 2013, at Turcotte Lab.  This is an event for kids, to introduce them to outdoor activities.  Here is the blurb from the website:

In celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day, the purpose of this event is to get kids and anyone interested in the outdoors to step outside for a hands-on experience with the tools and concepts of hunting and fishing in Mississippi. They will learn how to reload shells, shoot skeet and sporting clays, get to try their hand at the MDWFP laser 3/D target shoot, learn how to tie flies, fish for catfish, learn how knives are made, shoot bows and arrows, learn about recycling, try their hand at canoeing, learn how to use a treestand safely, learn the importance of clean water, see snakes and alligators, and so much more!
It is a fun-filled day for all presented with the help of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks and a host of other conservation organizations and groups including Magnolia Fly Fishers, Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, American Zookeepers Association, Keep the Rez Beautiful, Ken Austin, National Wild Turkey Federation, Mississippi Bowhunters Association, Treestand Manufacturers Association, Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation, Simmons Creative Productions, and more! Each of these organizations volunteers their time and talent to educate youth of all ages.
This is a free event so mark your calendars and make plans to attend. For more information please call the Mississippi Wildlife Federation at 601-605-1790.
