Volunteers Needed for "Let's Go Fishing"
February 2, 2005
WATERBURY, VT -- Vermont's "LET'S GO FISHING" Program is looking for volunteers who love to fish and want to pass on the fishing tradition to children and their families. According to Mark Scott, Education Program Manager for the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, men and women of all ages and all areas of the state are invited to attend the next Instructor Workshop, March 19 & 20 in Barre.
"Here's what it takes," says Scott. "If you love to fish, want to teach others, care about the ethical use of Vermont's water resources, and you want to volunteer with the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, we want to hear from you." Instructors in the "LET'S GO FISHING" Program organize fishing clinics in their communities or schools to teach successful fishing techniques and ethical attitudes to Vermont's next generation of anglers.
The two-day Instructor Workshop teaches fishing techniques, ethics, water resource management, and tackle craft. Classes are informal, and it is not necessary to have a high level of fishing expertise to become an Instructor. Teachers of all grade levels are invited to learn how to use "LET'S GO FISHING" across the curriculum from elementary through high school.
There is no cost to participants for registration, meals or instruction. Saturday night lodging is provided for those living too far away to commute. The Workshop runs from 8:30 to 4:30 both Saturday and Sunday, March 19 & 20. It will be held at the Barre Fish and Game Clubhouse.
