AGFC nature centers to offer free gun safety cables

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK – As the temperature starts to rise, firearms are getting stored away and fishing poles are being rigged for spring time angling. This doesn't mean we should store our thoughts of firearm safety away with those firearms.

A responsible gun owner will always think of safety. With that in mind, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission nature centers in Pine Bluff, Jonesboro, Fort Smith and Little Rock are taking advantage of a program offered by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The program is called Project Child Safe.

The four nature centers, along with the help of local law enforcement agencies, will be distributing gun safety cables free of charge to each person visiting one of the nature centers on March 22-23.

Participating Nature Centers:

Janet Huckabee Arkansas River Valley Nature Center
8300 Wells Lake Rd.
Fort Smith
In partnership with Fort Smith Police Department

Governor Mike Huckabee Delta Rivers Nature Center
1400 Black Dog Rd.
Pine Bluff

Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center
602 President Clinton Ave.
Little Rock
In partnership with Little Rock Police Department

Forrest L. Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center
