Our annual benefit was cancelled this past March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds from this online gun raffle will enable us to continue our mission for the Blue Heron Nature Center and Jasper Conservation District to educate and assist Jasper County for conservation education, conservation in urban and developing communities and conservation in rural communities.
To help people conserve, maintain, and improve our natural resources and environment by promoting wise land use practices, environmental education, and technical assistance.
