Holderness Hunter Education
Center Needs Volunteers
Owl Brook Volunteer Fair March 12 & 13
HOLDERNESS, N.H. -- Find out how you can get involved as a volunteer at New Hampshire Fish and Game's Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness at a volunteer open house set for March 12 and 13, 2005, from 1 to 3 p.m. each day. The session offers a chance to meet Owl Brook manager Sean Williamson, get a tour of the new facilities and find out the many ways that volunteers pitch in to make Owl Brook a success.
"We have a great community of committed volunteers who love what they do here at Owl Brook," Williamson said. "But with more activities than ever planned this year at the center, we could really use more helping hands."
Located on 500 acres of land off Perch Pond Road in Holderness, the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center teaches people in the knowledge and skills they need to become safe and responsible hunters, trappers, and stewards of the state's natural resources. Volunteers play a vital role in presenting this message to visitors and passing the heritages of hunting and trapping on to the next generation. Instructors are needed for hunter, bowhunter and trapper education. Volunteers also help with range supervision, trail and grounds maintenance, greeting visitors and leading group activities. Training will be provided.
How to get to Owl Brook: From Route 175 in Holderness, turn onto Hardhack Road and travel east about 75 yards. Turn right onto Perch Pond Road and follow it for 1.8 miles. The entrance to the center will be on the left.
