– In his continuing effort to promote the many outdoor recreational activities available in the 122nd Legislative District to area residents, Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) will once again host a Sportsmen’s and Outdoor Expo later this month.
The free event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 26, 2-5 p.m., at the Penn Forest Township Volunteer Fire Co. No. 1, 1387 State Route 903, in Jim Thorpe. The expo will include door prizes and feature more than 30 exhibitors.
“All of us are ready for the warmer weather to arrive so we can make plans to head outdoors,” said Heffley. “There are many recreational options in this region and our expo is a great way to learn more about them.”
The expo will be preceded by a hunter/trapper education course, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Game Commission, which will start at 8 a.m. The class is available to first-time hunters and children ages 11 and up. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children. Topics covered during the course include responsible hunting behavior, firearm safety, wildlife and conservation management, and hunting techniques.
