Sandhill outdoor skills calendar
The Sandhill Outdoor Skills Center provides a variety of educational activities in the wide, WILD world of wildlife recreation.
Wildlife staff, volunteers and guest instructors conduct a variety of workshops each year, primarily on weekends. Workshops use both an indoor classroom center as well as the outdoor world of Sandhill Wildlife Area. Workshops introduce participants to the appropriate use of outdoor equipment, developing skills to feel more competent outdoors and introducing participants to others who share similar interests. Outdoor Skills programs are enhanced by a shooting range, trails, orienteering course and opportunities for supervised hunting and trapping experiences. These workshops and clinics are designed to be hands-on learning experiences to improve participant knowledge, skills and experience level.
The Sandhill Wildlife Area is open to the public. Individuals and groups are welcome to register for any of our workshops on a first-come-first served basis. Please fill out the workshop registration form for the workshop you would like to attend and mail it to the address on the application form. Applications CANNOT be taken over the phone.
