Farmland Conservation Club and the HTDA

Plans are already in the works for the HTDA to expand on its highly successful youth program for 2011. HTDA President Chris Powell attended a meeting that was arranged by HTDA Director Rich Emery at the Farmland Conservation Club. Powell and Emery met with nearly the entire board and several officers from Farmland at their beautiful facility located in Northern Indiana on Friday, Jan 21st, 2011. The main topic was a major youth event. 

Farmland Director John Myers had contact the HTDA in the fall of 2010 to get the ball rolling for expanding youth initiatives. The HTDA, dedicated to working with conservation groups and building a network of conservation efforts across the state jumped at the idea. Farmland Conservation Club’s offer to use their facility shows a true dedication to Indiana’s future in outdoor recreation, specifically hunting and fishing. This also is the main goal of the HTDA as our motto states, “preserving our heritage for future generations”. 

The date for this huge event is July 9th, 2011 at the Farmland club. Farmland Conservation Club grounds offer an awesome opportunity for the public to be introduced to shooting sports on their archery range, 300 yard rifle range, pistol range and shotgun range. Interested in hunting with dogs? Farmland has developed its 258 acres into an upland paradise with river frontage, standing timber and native grass prairies. Fishing demos will be conducted on the 3 acre lake and trapper education will be conducted with real “hands on” demos in the backwater marshes. This is an awesome opportunity to reach those interested in engaging in the life sports of hunting, fishing and trapping. 

Thank You Farmland Conservation Club in your help of the HTDA to: “preserve our heritage for future generations” 

Make plans now to attend and watch here for future announcements as this event develops.
