SHAWNEE COUNTY, Kan. (WIBW-TV) A local conservation organization sponsored an event to get kids off the couch and into the great outdoors Saturday morning.

The Kaw Valley Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation hosted it's 7th Annual Youth Shoot Saturday morning at Shawnee State Lake.

Around 30 area youth got to participate in several activities including a clay shooting range, bow and arrow target shooting, and a rifle target range.
