The Grundy County Conservation Board will be sponsoring a Hunter Safety Education Course on Thursday, June 21, 2012. The entire 10 hour class will take place that day. Participants will meet at the Grundy County Heritage Museum in Morrison beginning at 8:00 AM and the class will end at the Izaak Walton League Clubhouse in Reinbeck at 6:00 PM.
Students must be at least 12 years old to receive the certification. Those eleven year olds wishing to take the course may do so but do not receive their certification until they turn 12. Pre-registration is required. Participants will receive instruction in such areas as wildlife management, firearm safety, game laws, ethics, and survival.
There is no cost for this class. Participants will be asked to bring a sack lunch. You can register by calling the Conservation Board office at 319-345-2688. When calling to register, have the following information: participant's full and legal name including middle initial, birth date, and social security number.
