Fish & Wildlife Volunteers — Fish Education & Hunter Education Programs

Volunteers Needed To Get Kids Hooked On Fishing!

NJDEP Fish & 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!

Fishing classes run 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!
