Wildlife Leadership Academy accepting applications
THE	 Wildlife	 Leadership	 Academy	 is	accepting	applications	from	Pennsylvania	 youths	 14	 to	 17	 years	 old	 interested	 in	 wildlife	 conservation	 and	 leadership	 development.	 The	 academy’s	year-round	program	begins	 with	 an	 intensive,	 week-long	 field	 school	 experience	 that	 focuses	 on	 a	 fish	or	wildlife	species	as	a	springboard	 for	 exploring	 biology,	 habitat	 and	 conservation	issues.	Participants	also	 develop	leadership	skills	by	engaging	 in	 team-building	 activities,	 educational	presentations	and	mock	“town	 hall”	meetings.		 Two	 field	 schools	 are	 available:	 “Pennsylvania	 Bucktails,”	 which	 focuses	 on	 white-tailed	 deer,	 and	 “Pennsylvania	 Brookies”	 which	 focuses	 on	 brook	 trout	 and	 coldwater	 fisheries.	Students	then	return	to	their	 community	to	share	their	knowledge,	 though	 public	 outreach	 programs.	 Top	 outreach	 achievements	 qualify	 students	 for	 field	 trips,	 opportunities	 to	 return	 to	 field	 school	 tuition-free	 as	mentors,	and	college	scholarships. Applications	 can	 be	 download	 at	 www.PICEweb.org	,	click	on	the	youth	 programs	 link.	 Application	 deadline	 is	 April	 1,	 2012.	 PA	 Bucktails	 will	 be	 held	 at	 Stone	 Valley	 Recreation	 Area	 in	 Huntingdon	 County	 June	 19-23.	 PA	 Brookies	 will	 be	 held	 at	 Sieg	 Conference	 Center	 in	 Clinton	 County	July	10-14. For	 more	 information,	 contact	 Academy	 Director,	 Michele	 Kittell,	 at	mkittell@piceweb.org	or	(570)2458518.
