Official MN Hunter Safety Course
DNR Firearms Safety Certification is required of anyone born after December 31, 1979 to purchase a hunting license in Minnesota and to participate in the High School Clay Target League. Students must complete the online course and register for the field day. Students must also attend in-person field days. From time to time, the Waterville area has field days, which we will try to advertise; however, sites may also be found on the MN DNR site.
Most Community Education activities can be paid for via PaySchools.

Do you like to try new flavors and recipes? Try out a new spice every month!
Each month we'll feature a new spice and make it available in a small, free take-home kit. Then we'll meet up (meeting dates above) to learn more about the spice's history and its uses. The group will also share what everyone made with the spice and their opinions on its flavor. Registration is required.
