Beau Turner’s Outdoor Experience is April 20

Folks looking to get outside on a nice spring day are invited to attend the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center’s (BTYCC) sixth annual Outdoor Experience on April 20. The BTYCC is in Jefferson County on U.S. 19 just north of U.S. 27.

The Saturday event is free and open to all ages. It begins at 10 a.m. and lasts until 2 p.m. Advance registration is not necessary.

Activities include fishing, archery, shooting sport stations, K-9 demonstration, wild animal displays, hayrides and more. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and its partners will have activities and educational programs that highlight the conservation of Florida’s fish and wildlife resources.

Also, outdoor television personality and Xtreme Sport Shooter Patrick Flanigan will be there, giving demonstrations at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

All attending youth age 15 and under will have a chance to win one of several door prizes, including hunting and fishing gear, a week of summer camp at the Ocala Outdoor Adventure Camp or a spot at the BTYCC summer camp.

Food will be available for purchase, or attendees can bring their own sack lunch.
Partners participating in the event include the Florida State Forest Service, National Wild Turkey Federation, U.S. Forest Service, United Waterfowlers of Florida, Ducks Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, Homestead Ministries, American Red Cross, Jefferson County Extension Office, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Jefferson Long Rifles, Plantation Security, Honoring the Troops, and Red Hills Chapter of Quail Forever.
