TWRA offers tree grants: The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is offering grants to encourage various organizations to plant trees across the state.
The $500 grants will go to cities, schools, civic groups, conservation groups and others who are interested.
For information contact the TWRA (615-6577) or Della Sawyers at Della.Sawyers@tn.gov
Information also is posted on the TWRA website, tnwildlife.org
The TWRA is funded almost entirely though the sale of hunting and fishing license and related revenue, but devotes millions of dollars annually to such conservation projects as the tree-restoration project.
Trap shoot: Greg Piercey won a shootoff with Tsuki Yamamoto after both hit 49 of 50 targets in regulation, to capture the Cedar City Gun Club’s weekly trap competition.

Amber Edwards was top in the Lady’s completion (31), Bill Robb won Senior (46), Ray Hutchensen Veteran (46), Lucas Green Junior (42) and Drew Dove Sub-Junior (33).

For information about the weekly shoot or other area shooting events contact Ben Schade at the Gun Club.
Hunter Ed: With some hunting seasons already open and others just around the corner, Tennessee residents are reminded that anyone borne after Jan. 1, 1969, must compete a Hunter Education Course in order to obtain a hunting license.
