Clinton County's Youth Outdoor Skills Day is Saturday, Sept. 14

CLINTON — The fifth annual Clinton County Youth Outdoors Skills Day will be Saturday, Sept. 14, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

A committee consisting of members of the Whitetails Unlimited Clinton County Chapter organizes the annual event. The day is a way for Clinton County kids ages 11-18 to experience a variety of outdoor skills. The event includes six stations that teach outdoor safety and allow kids the chance to learn about outdoors activities and improve their skills with hands-on experience in a safety-conscious environment.

The stations include fishing, turkey hunting, air rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders and archery. There are six 45-minute rotations, allowing each child a chance to experience each activity. The stations are staffed by various conservation organizations including Pheasants Forever, Harvester Bass Club, Whitetails Unlimited, Wild Turkey Federation, the Clinton Izaak Walton League, Clinton County Sportsman’s Club, Clinton County Conservation, Lyons Middle School Archery Club, and Stan and Kay Bates.

A free lunch of hot dogs, chips and soft drinks is included for all who attend and each will receive a complimentary commemorative T-shirt. While the day is designed for youths, parents and younger siblings may attend as well and will be given the free lunch.

Youth Outdoors Skills Day takes place at the Izaak Walton League, 4167 Iowa 136, northwest of Clinton. The full day begins at 9 a.m. with registration. Cost of the event is $5.

Anyone who would like to attend may pick up a registration form at Beckwith Commercial Roofing, 2000 Manufacturing Drive, or call 242-6939. Early signup is encouraged as the event is limited to 70 children.
