Senator Jenkins,

 

On Saturday September 13, 2014 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm we will be having our annual Utah Waterfowl Association “Utah Youth Waterfowl and Outdoor Festival” at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area.  Cabelas and SFW are sponsoring it this year so we are planning on an even bigger event than last when we had 1,000 plus kids and parents in attendance.

 

The event is free and includes lunch provided by Camp Chef.  You can check out the event website at http://www.utahwaterfowlfair.com/ to see some of the activities we had last year, preregister and get directions.  The event includes lots of wetlands education and conservation displays and activities along with aspects of waterfowl hunting like retriever demonstrations, airboat and mud motorboat rides and a duck calling clinic. DWR Director Greg Sheehan and many from his staff along with Parks and Recreation folks are heavily involved as well and will be in attendance.  

 

We give away free duck calls to the first 100+ kids (yes, mothers hate us) so, no pun intended, this is a real blast for the kids.  This event is fun for boys and girls from toddlers to teenagers and even those who may never become waterfowlers.  It’s a fun day for parents, grandparents, kids and grandkids.

 

If nothing else, who would ever turn down a free airboat ride?

 

We are inviting local, county and state representatives/senators who may be interested to attend with their families.
