Most HTE classes last at least 10 hours over two or more days, and participants must attend all instruction before taking the test at the end of the course. Youngsters must be at least 11 years old to receive HTE certification. Registrations also are being ac-
cepted for the independent study version of the basic HTE program, which is available for those 11 years of age or older. A fee of $1.59 may apply if applicants order a printed copy of the study manual, which is available online free of charge.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (570)2458518.
