About 41 youth between the ages of 8 and 15 turned out Saturday for the fourth annual Scott O’Dell and Steve Hett Memorial Youth Day at the wildlife area at Marion Reservoir’s French Creek Cove. The event was sponsored by Marion County Quail Forever, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. Participants rotated between stations that featured shooting, archery and fur trapping. About 12 volunteers, as well as several parents, helped supervise the activities, including lunch. The event is held to honor of the late Scott O’Dell and Steve Hett, outdoors enthusiasts from Marion.
