YHEC welcomes all youth who wants to improve their outdoor skills
The Youth Hunter Education Challenge ( YHEC ) Program at the August A. Busch Conservation Area is accepting applications from young outdoor enthusiasts for the 2013 season of activities.
Participants learn the fundamentals of shotgun, rifle, archery and muzzleloader shooting. Additionally, they learn wildlife identification, map and compass orienteering and more. YHEC participants get hands-on training in eight outdoor skill areas. There are two age groups; 11 to 14 and 15 to 18 years. There is no fee to join, however, participants are asked to make the commitment to develop their skills in all eight areas of challenge.
The kickoff meeting will be 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 2, at the Administration Building at the August A. Busch Conservation Area
Those interested should call Frank Scott, head coach, at: 673-1283 or email email@example.com.
