Local union volunteers trained in firearms safety and instruction will provide hands-on introductions to sporting clays and archery, and youth will also get some hands-on fishing experience. The event at One in One Hundred Gun Club in Lumberton at 1228 Texas 421 will be Saturday 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. It is part of a series of free, community-based youth outreach activities organized under Work Boots
on the Ground—the USA’s flagship conservation program. The event is open to the public.

Preserving our outdoor heritage for tomorrow starts with getting kids outside today. Hunters and recreational shooters generate billions in retail sales and economic activity each year, while contributing millions for conservation and wildlife management nationwide through special federal excise taxes.

Research has also proven that outdoor-related activities such as hunting create participatory pathways for children to experience nature and help kindle a lifelong interest in environmental conservation.

This free event will help
educate a future generation of American hunters, recreational shooters, and anglers from diverse communities and backgrounds.

Local labor union members and other volunteers will teach boys and girls from all walks of life about the shooting sports and other outdoor topics.
