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 are a must!
Classes run Monday through Friday from April through October and instructors can volunteer at times which suit their schedules. Interested applicants must be a Wildlife Conservation Corps (WCC) volunteer. Download a WCC application from the divison's website at:http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/wcchome.htm .
A training session for interested applicants will be held at the Pequest Trout Hatchery on Wednesday, April 11 from 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Jessica Griglak atJessica.Griglak@dep.state.nj.us or by phone at 908-637-4125.
