The event will be held at Swan Lake NWR near Sumner, MO and is open to all youth up to 17 years old and their families. The event’s goal is to get more children and their families involved in the outdoors, exposing them to the various aspects surrounding waterfowl hunting, such as dog retrieval and duck calling, in addition to other outdoor activities like trapping, archery, and wildlife management. There will be many hands-on activities such as an MDC Skeet Shoot station, a United Bow Hunters shooting booth with archery opportunities, an interactive stream box, a dog retrieval demonstration, and a wildlife management techniques station put on by the Missouri Western State University Chapter of the Wildlife Society.

There will be a free lunch from 12-2 pm provided by the Swan Lake Sportsman’s Club and a Duck Calling contest starting at 2:30 pm. The top three callers in each age category will each earn a prize from the Yellow Creek Chapter of DU. Yellow Creek DU will also have door prizes being given away all day, with a youth gun drawing at the end of the day for those that participate in all the day’s activities. Prize participants must be present to win and accept their prizes. With all the fun activities to participate in and interesting things to see, why not visit the refuge on Saturday August 24th to have a fun day with the family at the Youth in the Outdoors Day at Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge?

Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge is located one mile south of Sumner, Missouri and managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the principal federal agency responsible for conserving, protecting and enhancing fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The Service manages the 97-million-acre National Wildlife Refuge System, which encompasses 548 national wildlife refuges, thousands of small wetlands and other special management areas. It also operates 69 national fish hatcheries, 64 fishery resources offices and 81 ecological services field stations. The agency enforces federal wildlife laws, administers the Endangered Species Act, manages migratory bird populations, restores nationally significant fisheries, conserves and restores wildlife habitat such as wetlands, and helps foreign and Native American tribal governments with their conservation efforts. It also oversees the Federal Assistance program, which distributes hundreds of millions of dollars in excise taxes on fishing and hunting equipment to state fish and wildlife agencies.
