From Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department
-- Women are demonstrating every day that they are increasingly aware of the many outdoor opportunities Vermont has to offer. With increasing awareness, comes increasing demand for exposure and training.
The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is very pleased to announce a "Ladies Only" Home Study Hunter Education class that will be instructed by, you guessed it, a woman.
"We are very pleased to say that we have several, very experienced and knowledgeable, female instructors in both hunter education and aquatic programs such as Let's Go Fishing," said Ann Shangraw, hunter education information specialist.
"We're adding an average of two female instructors a year, and it's our goal to increase this average. Typically, learning experiences are enhanced for women when taught by the same gender. Everyone should feel completely comfortable in a learning environment, and that's what we're trying to provide."
The "Ladies Only" Home Study Hunter Education class will be held Saturday, July 26, at the Lamoille Valley Fish & Game Club, Garfield Road in Morrisville, Vt. The class will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pre-registration is required by calling (802) 241-3720 before July 10.
