On September 28, 2013, the DEEP and Friends of Sessions Woods will be hosting Hunting & Fishing Appreciation Day at the Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area in Burlington.
Fun activities for all ages are planned, along with educational programs and workshops about hunting and fishing. Best of all, the event is free to attend!
So, mark your calendar. Come practice your shooting and casting skills. Talk to DEEP biologists about wildlife and fisheries. Learn some tips about getting that big buck or hooking that monster bass. Check out the latest in hunting and fishing gear. Be sure to bring the kids and grandkids. Older children will be able to test their skills on the .22 rifle and archery ranges. Younger children will be able to enjoy activities, learn about wildlife, and make crafts. Food will be available for sale. But, if you want, bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy.
Why we're celebrating
Hunters and anglers have been at the forefront of the conservation movement for over 100 years. They showed their support by requesting taxes and special fees on hunting and fishing equipment to help pay for wildlife and fish management, habitat restoration, and other conservation programs through the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration (WSFR) Program.
