New Outdoor Education Center and Shooting Park – Grand Opening June 7th

It is finally here! The family shooting sports event of the year. June 7th will be the grand opening event for the new Nebraska Outdoor Education Center in Lincoln at 4703 N 44th Street or 44th & Superior in Boosalis Park. From 10am – 4pm we will be open for families, shooters, and kids of all ages to come out and try flinging arrows on the new indoor 32 lane archery range (the largest one in Nebraska)! Join us in the new indoor firearms range on one of 10 lanes featuring ballistic shooting stalls and auto retractable target carriers.

We will also have the new aerial archery shooting machine present! Try shooting targets out of the sky with bow and arrow! The new National Wild Turkey Federation Jakes Range will be open for younger archers and of course the outdoor archery range is open daily. We will have equipment (bows/arrows, guns/ammo) and all activities are free to the public. We will also have free food from 11 am – 1pm. At 1130 am join us to watch KFOR 1240 Morning Host Dale Johnson shoot for thousands of dollars for the new center.

See You Out There!
