(Continued)



Black bear seminar

Are you interested in learning more about black bear activity in northeast Ohio? Ohio’s largest mammal spends a great deal of time in the spotlight during our summer months. Join Division of Wildlife experts to learn more about these fascinating creatures at an informative public program on Wednesday, April 23 from 6-8 p.m. The program will take place at Division of Wildlife, District Three headquarters, 912 Portage Lakes Drive, Akron.

Topics to be covered include bear biology, ecology, life history information, population trends and current status, management, and what to do if you encounter a black bear.

This program is best suited for ages 16 and up. The program is free but preregistration is required as seating is limited. Call the front desk at the Ohio Division of Wildlife, District Three headquarters at (330) 644-2293.

Certification workshop

The ODNR Division of Wildlife will host a free workshop where attendees will become certified Passport to Fishing instructors. The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, April 26 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Wildlife District Three, 912 Portage Lakes Drive, Akron.

The workshop is free but pre-registration is required; call Ken Fry, Division of Wildlife at (330) 245-3030 or email kenneth.fry@dnr.state.oh.us.  Attendees will be required to participate in a background check.

By becoming certified instructors, attendees will help connect students with the outdoors. Resources available to instructors include grants, equipment, brochures, and training.

Passport to Fishing was developed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and adopted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation.  Workshops teach volunteers the basics of fishing and how to run a four-station fishing program with a fishing event.

These instructors then go back to their communities, with a written curriculum and training aids, to teach youngsters and beginning anglers the basics of fishing.
