Getting kids outdoors is easy if there is a functioning and fun place for them to do so. Beau Turner, host of the Sportsman Channel series Beau Knows Outdoors and son of the prodigious Ted Turner, the media mogul known for founding CNN. Both men are outdoorsmen, Beau probably more so. Beau created the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center in Lamont, Florida to give young people a place to discover and enjoy the outdoors.
In one episode of Beau Knows Outdoors, Beau led his camera crew around the center during an open house. Watch the excitement on children’s faces when they catch a large fish, shooting targets, or throwing axes outdoors. Find out more information about the center at btycc.org.
