Time is running out to register for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension’s Wildlife & Fisheries Extension Unit’s first annual Wildlife & Fisheries Specialist Academy.The purpose of the Wildlife & Fisheries Specialist Academy is to provide advanced training whereby master volunteers can support or expand specific county educational programs of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. The goal of the Wildlife & Fisheries Specialist Academy is not to produce “experts”, rather to identify Master Volunteers who have received highly specialized training to support specific natural resource-related programs or projects. Such projects may include educational projects such as training other master volunteers, clientele presentations, and/or applied research and demonstrations.
The Wildlife & Fisheries Specialist Academy will be held Tuesday February 13th and Wednesday February 14th in College Station. Classroom sessions will be held in the mornings at the AgriLife Turf Research Facility (3100 F&B Road, College Station, TX) and field based sessions in the afternoon. Materials and lunch will be provided each day.
