Vermont wildlife course for educators set

Posted: Updated:

WOODBURY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont teachers and other educators will be getting a chance to learn more about the state's wildlife.

The "Wildlife Management for Educators" course will be held July 13 through 18 at the Buck Lake Conservation Camp in Woodbury.

The one-week, three-credit graduate course is taught by staff from the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife and others from the Agency of Natural Resources through the University of Vermont.

Fish and Wildlife's Education Coordinator Alison Thomas says that if teachers can get connected with the outdoors and in turn expose their students, then many of these students will be able to make informed decisions about Vermont wildlife when they become adults.
