Upcoming Event Schedule for August at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery

Although the summer may seem to be coming to an end with the start

of school, there is still plenty of time, and several great events, taking

place at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery! So check out the

following and make plans to be a part of our hatchery happenings! 

 

Join us on Saturday, August 7th, 2010 from 1p.m. 3 p.m. CST as

the hatchery celebrates the birthday of one of the greatest outdoor

icons of all times Smokey Bear! With cupcakes and free goodies,

bring your family and friends and stop in anytime from 1p.m. 3 p.m.

CST for a chance to meet the birthday bear himself! You’ll also learn

more about the history of the real Smokey Bear and his campaign

message on forest fire prevention. There will be cake and plenty of

time to tour the hatchery, including the Visitor/Environmental

Education Center, so don’t miss out on all the fun!

Are you a teacher, nonformal educator, 4-H leader, Girl Scout/Boy

Scout volunteer, parent, etc looking to learn new engaging, fun

activities that incorporate both the environment and education? If so,

here is a workshop for you! Make plans to attend the Project WILD

Facilitator Workshop, set for Friday and Saturday, August 27th and

28th, 2010. This workshop is designed to train teachers and other

interested persons to lead Project WILD workshops. The goal of

Project WILD is for children and adults to develop problem solving

and decision-making skills about sharing the environment with

wildlife. The workshop will be from 5 p.m. 8:30 p.m. CST at the

Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery Visitor/Environmental Education

Center on Friday, August 27th, 2010 and 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST

on Saturday, August 28th, 2010. Both days are required. The fee

to register is $30.00, which includes all programming, materials, books, meals and snacks. You may pre-register by contacting Environmental Education/Outreach Specialist Amanda Patrick at 270-343-3797 or via email: Amanda_Patrick@fws.gov.

 

Have you ever wanted to learn more about photography? Are you an

avid fan of the outdoors as well? If so, here is the perfect class for

you! Join us for an intermediate photography class designed for

nature enthusiasts with a fundamental understanding of photography.

You do not need elaborate or expensive equipment for this

workshop; however, a camera that allows manual settings will give

you more options. Just bring your digital camera, a tripod (if you have

one) and a love for the outdoors. You will receive instruction about

composition guidelines and how to use depth of field and shutter

speed to dramatically improve your photographs. Class will also

cover ethics of nature photography and creating a great outdoor

photograph. During a guided nature walk, you will have a hands-on

opportunity to photograph nature’s diverse beauty along the

Cumberland River. The workshop is set for Saturday, August 14th,

2010 and will begin at 8 a.m. CST and conclude at 12 p.m. CST.

The cost is $35.00, which includes all instructional materials and an 8

x 10 print of your favorite shot you took during the class. Participants

need to bring their own camera. Please contact Environmental

Education/Outreach Specialist Amanda Patrick at 270-343-3797 or

via email at Amanda_Patrick@fws.gov to register for the event.
