    Dear Hunters and Anglers,

    On Saturday, September 24th, there will be a special event at Sessions Woods WMA in Burlington, CT, to celebrate the contributions that hunters and anglers have made to the conservation of Connecticut's natural resources. This FREE, day-long event will feature many outdoor-related activities and demonstrations. Activities for all ages are planned, along with interesting programs and workshops about hunting and fishing, hunting dog demonstrations, .22 rifle and archery ranges, 3-D archery, casting pools and a turkey calling contest. Attendees also will have the opportunity to speak firsthand with biologists about wildlife and fisheries topics, as well as with representatives from a variety of conservation, hunting, and fishing organizations. Kids can participate in several fun activities and crafts, such as track making, face painting, a scavenger hunt, and a chance to see various live turtles. There will be a silent auction to benefit the non-profit Friends of Sessions Woods.

    Activities will run from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Handicapped and limited public parking will be available on site at Sessions Woods. Overflow shuttle parking will be available at Lewis S. Mills High School, 26 Lyons Road, off of Route 4 in Burlington. The Friends of Sessions Woods will be selling food and drinks during the event, or you can bring your own picnic lunch.
