This project honors Minnesota’s Veterans and military with a permanently protected, publicly-accessible wildlife area.
This project is the result of Pheasants Forever’s Build a Wildlife Area campaign, a proven model of raising funds and protecting wildlife habitat. The land acquired is restored and enhanced for wildlife, then transferred to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. As the new Veterans Wildlife Management Area, it will be permanently protected and open for public recreation – hunting, fishing, hiking, bird watching, etc.
The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration takes to the skies with excitement and thrills throughout the weeklong event. The family-friendly event is held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, at Wittman Regional Airport, and the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) hosts a variety of activities, both on the ground and in the air.
All Veterans of U S Military Service, Active Duty Personnel, Reserves and Guard members and your families are invited to enjoy a fabulous and FREE picnic lunch of Smokey River BBQ with all the trimmings – all courtesy of the Disabled American Veterans Foundation, the Lanesboro Volunteer Fire Department, and the Parkway Pub in Lanesboro.
