Training for "Wonders of Wildlife" Volunteers Starts Sept. 22
CONCORD, N.H. -- The start of free training to become a "Wonders of Wildlife" (WOW) volunteer educator for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is coming up soon. So if you enjoy wildlife, like kids, and have time to volunteer during the day, sign up for a three-month training course for new WOW volunteers beginning September 22.
Trained WOW docents travel to schools or youth groups to present programs focusing on New Hampshire wildlife and endangered species, aquatic ecology and wetlands. Volunteers get 11 sessions of free training between September and February. After the training, volunteers commit to at least 48 volunteer hours to natural resource education over the following two school years. The training sessions and most presentations take place during school-day hours.

For more information on volunteering for the WOW program, contact Mary Goodyear or Stephanie Hicks at Twin Mountain Fish and Wildlife Center, 1450 Route 3 North, Whitefield, NH 03598; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; or call (603) 846-5108 or (603) 271-3211.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats, and is responsible for informing and educating the public about these resources.
