Volunteers Needed To Get Kids Hooked On Fishing!

p46-Fish-Ed-guidance-363.tifNew Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife needs volunteers at the Pequest Trout Hatchery and Natural Resource Education Center
to teach youths about fishing.

Teaching experience is helpful—but not required—to become a fishing education instructor. However, enthusiasm, energy and
the desire to teach children proper fishing techniques and ethics
is a must!

Classes run Monday through Friday from April through October. Interested applicants must become a Wildlife Conservation Corps (WCC) volunteer. Download a WCC application from our website at:

Share the pleasures of fishing and pass on a conservation ethic to the next generation. Become a fishing education instructor today!
