Conservation Night at County Fair Renamed In Memory Of Jan Hampton



All families are encouraged to attend the second annual Youth Conservation Night on August 9th at this year’s Cameron County Fair. Starting this year the name of this event will be the Jan Hampton Youth Conservation Night. 

Jan passed away earlier this year and was very involved in the Cameron County Fair and her passion for teaching our young people the wonders of nature was never ending. 

The event is co-sponsored by Cameron County Long Beards Chapter of National Wild Turkey Federation and will also be considered a Chapter JAKES event. JAKES is acronym for Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship. Other co-sponsors are Cameron County Conservation District (CCCD) and Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities (CCOYA). 

Youth Conservation night is scheduled for August 9th starting at 6 p.m. and will be focused on youth. There will be plenty of exhibitors on hand with several fun activities utilizing an Outdoor Conservation theme. Although the focus is educating our area youth the adults can expect to have fun and learn about conservation as well.
