Stackhouse Park, Inc.'s Board of Directors would like to gauge the public's interest in a half-day youth orientation program that would introduce young people to learning about turkeys, including hunting wild turkeys. The program would be led by Stackhouse Park board member Tom Hindman, who has hosted turkey clinics in the park for many years and is the author of The Perfect Pursuit.
At present, there are no plans for setting a minimum age for the orientation. Children and youth who are interested in participating must be accompanied by an adult.
Organizers are interested in hosting the orientation this summer; specifically, on a mid-July afternoon.
In addition to educating youth, the organizers intend to educate the parents/guardians, helping them prepare to become mentors to first-time hunters.
Questions, concerns, and general feedback about this potential program can be shared by filling out the form below. We welcome any questions, comments, or ideas you may have.
Thank you for your time!
"This time around, Stackhouse Park Board Chairman Mike Zibura guides me through the beautiful nature area nestled between Westmont Borough, Lower Yoder Township, Brownstown and several other municipalities in Cambria County, Pennsylvania. We cover everything from preservation of the park, the history of how it came to be and the hundreds of volunteer hours needed to keep it up and running." -Joshua Byers, Tribune-Democrat
