Annual National Wild Turkey Youth Field Day
- The Big Blue Talking Toms Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation will hold its Annual JAKES event as a part of the NWTF's JAKES program. Developed in 1981, the JAKES program is dedicated to informing, educating and involving youth in wildlife conservation and the wise stewardship of our natural resources. Each JAKES event focuses on conservation and outdoor recreation, with expert instructors teaching important lessons in wildlife management tied into a strong family-values theme. With an emphasis on fun, the events keep kids interested while learning.
