WESTERN WAYNE COUNTY CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION
WWCCA (Western Wayne County Conservation Association) is located on 80+ acres at the western edge of Wayne County in Plymouth Township. The private club is open 360 days a year, Monday through Thursday and Saturdays from 10am to 6pm, Friday’s from 10am to midnight and Sunday from 10am to 8pm. As our name implies we are conservationists promoting the well being of our forests, waters and wildlife.
WWCCA also provides the widest variety of ranges for our shooting members. Thirteen (13) individual ranges offer the optimum challenge for the firearm and archery enthusiasts. Rifle and pistol shooters enjoy our 25, 50, 100 and 200 yard ranges. Archers have a stand-up facility nestled in the pine trees with a raised platform at 10,14 and 17 feet for targets ranging from 20 to 60 yards. Those members with shotguns have access to multiple trap and skeet fields and a challenging 5-stand facility. Our enclosed Air-Gun range offers opportunities for old and young alike.
In addition to dedicated ranges WWCCA has a densely wooded Archery and Black Powder walk-thru. Our primitive area offers a chance to experience a time in history before cell phones and i-pads with our Tonquish Muzzleloaders. Each year this group puts on the largest mountain man primitive Rendezvous over the Labor Day holiday.
Helping our members to be the best and safest with their firearms are our NRA classes. Offering a variety of instruction to members and guests there are classes from Concealed Pistol, Hunter Safety, Shotgun and many more.
Overall, we recognized that our next generation is not only the future of our club but the future of our country. Teaching our youngsters the importance of conservation and the safe use of guns and bows is a responsibility we take very seriously. We offer multiple classes in rifle, shotgun and archery not only to our member’s children but to children of our friends and neighbors.
After the equipment is put away and there are stories to tell it’s time to gather at the clubhouse. WWCCA’s clubhouse offers a complete kitchen for that lunchtime meal on the weekends and a full bar for the adult beverage of your choice during normal club hours. In addition it is home to holiday parties, Lenten fish fry’s, and a variety of social events throughout the year.
It is remarkable that in 1936 ten men, who were avid hunters and fisherman, had a vision of having a club devoted to their sports. By 1938, after much discussion, work and planning, their dream became a reality and Western Wayne County Conservation Association was born.
Please come out and tour our club. Once you are here you will see how their vision has grown over 70 years later.
