Posted by John on 2012/9/6 11:50:00 (654 reads) News by the same author

Make plans to attend the annual Ducks Unlimited "Green-Wing" Day at Swan Lake near Sumner. It is that time of year again, when the ducks and geese are gearing up for migration and the hunters are getting their blinds and waders ready.

Swan Lake NWR and the Yellow Creek Chapter of Ducks Unlimited are doing their part to get the youth ready by hosting Greenwing Day on September 15th from 11 until 4 o'clock.

The event will be held at Swan Lake NWR and is open to all kids up to 17 years old, everyone in the family is welcome to attend as well. There will be exhibits and booths all around the refuge that cover various aspects of waterfowl hunting in a fun and educational manner.

These include a Decoy booth, Dog Retrieving exhibition, Archery and Trap shooting stations, Waterfowl Identification, and much more. Special exhibitions include a visit from the Life Flight helicopter, depending on availability, and a live Falconry demonstration.

This event has more than just exhibitions and booths. A free lunch will be provided by the Swan Lake Sportsmanís Club from 12-2pm. There will be a Duck Calling contest at 2:30pm, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes for various age groups.

Youth and adult raffle drawings will be going on all day, and the winner of the Mossberg 535 Pump Action Ducks Unlimited shotgun will finally be drawn from the raffle organized by the Friends of Swan Lake that has been going on since earlier this summer.

Swan Lake NWR is located one mile south of Sumner and managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service as a unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System.

The USFWS is the principal federal agency responsible for conserving, protecting and enhancing fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for continuing benefit of the American people.
