Activity stations included BB-gun and archery target shooting, water safety, a dog care and handling demonstration, fly rod casting, and an introduction to bats. Fifty children and 20 adults attended the event, which was held at the Corps’ picnic shelter at the Dale Hollow Dam site. David Pelren and Michael Gale of the Cookeville Ecological Services Field Office assisted with the event. Thanks to all of the agency personnel, friends group members, and volunteers for making this event such a success.
