JCSWCD fundraiser to be June 13 at Highland Hunting in Riverside

RIVERSIDE– The Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District is hosting its first annual Sporting Clay Shoot Fundraiser on Saturday, June 13, at Highland Hideaway Hunting, at 3127 160th St. in Riverside. All proceeds will benefit conservation education and outreach efforts in Johnson County.
Participants can register for the event online at www.jcswcd.org. Early registration is $115 per shooter until June 1. After June 1, the registration fee will increase to $125.
Registration for the event includes a 100-target sporting clay round, four boxes of shells, and lunch.
Check-in for the event will begin Saturday morning at 9 a.m., the shoot will begin at 10 a.m., and lunch will be at noon. Participants should bring their own eyewear and hearing protection, shotgun, and appropriate clothing for being outside. Golf carts, 4-wheelers, or other ATV’s are allowed on the course. All levels of experience are welcome to participate in the event.
Soil and water conservation districts throughout the state operate on a budget of $2,000 annually, most of which is used for state and national membership dues. This leaves little funding for conservation education and outreach activities. One of the primary goals of the JCSCWD is to provide environmental learning opportunities to Johnson County residents by organizing and participating in events, demonstrations, and field days for people of all ages.
