April 10th marks the 151st Birthday of Jack Miner, Canada’s first conservationist and a celebration is planned this weekend.

In 1947, The Canadian Government declared the week of Jack Miner’s birth, April 10th, 1865 to be National Wildlife Week. Sixty-nine years later, the Jack Miner Migratory Bird Foundation will be kicking off National Wildlife Week April 9th & 10th with activities for young and old alike.

Activities include contests for duck and goose calling, children’s activities, a Sportsmen’s’ Yard Sale, trout pond, vendors, and a 151st Birthday party for Jack Miner.
