"New Hampshire is still a relatively rural state, but fewer youth are taking advantage of outdoor opportunities," said Tom Flynn, Program manager at Owl Brook. "The Owl Brook Hunter Education Center is here to inspire young people to become involved in the outdoors.  These free, skill-based summer workshops are a fun way to help them discover what it's all about."
The mission of the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center is to educate individuals in the knowledge, skills, and behaviors needed to become safe and responsible hunters, trappers and stewards of the state's natural resources.  Its facilities include shooting ranges, classroom space and interpretive trails.

Activities at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center are made possible by Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration funds.
