WANTED: Volunteers for 2011 Wisconsin Outdoor Education Expo

Hunter Education Instructors are needed to mentor fourth and
fifth grade students while shooting BB guns at the Wisconsin
Outdoor Education Expo on Thurs. May 19 and Fri. May 20, 2011. The
“Youth Expo” is held at the Dodge County Fairgrounds, three miles
east of Beaver Dam on Hwy 33.

Five Expos held since 2006 have attracted more than 21,000
students, teachers and chaperones. The Expo is arranged by “camps,”
including: archery, wildlife and conservation heritage enrichment,
team building, firearm safety, fishing, camping, birds of prey,
bird and animal calling, sporting dog demonstrations and trail
recreation. All of this at no cost to the schools or groups
attending.

Students arriving at the DNR firearm safety camp attend brief
instruction on TAB-K presented by RSWs and then proceed to shoot BB
guns at paper targets. Each student is mentored, one-on-one, by a
Hunter Ed. Instr. or a Conservation Warden. This is where YOU can
help. Plans are being made to have two 24 target ranges operating;
which means over 50 instructors and/or wardens are needed each
day.

If you want to help on one or both days, or want more
information, contact Hunter Ed. Instr. Coordinator, Marlin
Spindler, 921 N. Center St. Beaver Dam, WI 53916, phone
(920)887-2895, or email at mspindler@charter.net, or RSW Jon King
atJon.King@Wisconsin.gov.
