Last Chance to Sign Up to Be a "Wonders of Wildlife" Volunteer This Year
CONCORD, N.H. -- If you're interested in being a Wonders of Wildlife (WOW) volunteer educator for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, the deadline is approaching soon for signing up. A nine-month training course for new volunteers begins September 11. Click here for a printable application form.
The Wonders of Wildlife program introduces youth to the Granite State's wildlife and aquatic resources. Trained WOW docents travel to schools or organized youth groups to present programs focusing on New Hampshire wildlife and endangered species, aquatic ecology and wetlands. WOW volunteers get 50 hours of free training between this September and May of 2004, attending up to three sessions a month. Topics covered include everything from pond ecology to working with children. Click here for the full schedule of training sessions for WOW docents. After the training is complete, WOW volunteers commit at least 48 volunteer hours to natural resource education over the following two school years.
