ADA archery range ribbon cutting at Twin Pines Conservation Education Center.A new opportunity for area archers with disabilities opened on Sept. 10 at the Twin Pines Conservation Education Center archery range. The range was constructed as two Eagle Scout projects with funding from the Missouri Department of Conservation. Funding for the Americans with Disabilities Act improvements was provided by the Wheelin’ Sportsmen, a division of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) and the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation.

“The NWTF appreciates the opportunity to work with the Missouri Department of Conservation and the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation to provide this new opportunity to people in the Shannon County area. This is something we have needed for quite a while,” said Troy McAfee, president of the Current River Caller Chapter of the NWTF.

The Twin Pines Archery Range is located to the west of the center and consists of an instructional range and a static range with targets at 10, 20, 30 and 40 yards. The range is open from sunrise to sunset when the Twin Pines area is open.
