The Parkers Prairie Sportsman's Club has been a community organization in
Parkers Prairie and Miltona since 1952. The main purpose of the Sportsman's
club is to promote and maintain area fish and wildlife with strong
consideration of conservation.
The Sportsman's club has sponsored and funded many projects since its inception
in 1952. In the 1960's the club blocked the runoffs into Lake Adley to clean up
the lake and built a damn on the South end of Fish Lake to keep the water level
high enough for fish to survive the harsh winters.
More recently the club has donated a boat landing and dock at Lake Adley Park.
They have also donated public docks on Lake Vermont and Fish Lake. They also
developed and maintain a public rifle range Southwest of town.
The Sportsman's club has purchased and maintains aerators for Lake Adley and
Fish Lake. The aerators have been in the lakes since the early
1980's and work to
maintain open water to provide ample oxygen for the fish to survive.
The club is funded in part by an annual fund raiser and proceeds
from the sale of pull tabs in local establishments. Half of the money they
raise is donated to Charity and they also support the Deer Hunters Association,
Ducks Unlimited, Wild Turkey Federation and other wildlife programs.
When the City built the
the Sportsman's were the second highest
local club to contribute totaling $50,475.00
of their own assets as well as hold
