Hunting safety for non-hunters Nov 1
Hunting season is upon us, and that means Wisconsin’s beautiful wild areas soon will be teeming with people toting weapons. How can a non-hunter safely enjoy the outdoors this time of year?
The Fond du Lac Public Library will offer Hunting Safety for the Non-hunter at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, November 1. Jackie Scharfenberg, forest naturalist/environmental educator at Kettle Moraine State Forest, and Alan Erickson, conservation warden for the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources, will talk about how to stay safe while sharing the state’s trails and woods.
Scharfenberg and Erickson will outline the different hunting seasons, the rules and regulations that surround hunting, cover some misconceptions about hunting and tips on keeping pets safe at this time. They’ll also provide information on safe non-hunting-related outdoor activities in the area.
The program is free; no registration required.
