Erik Lewis of the WA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, will teach you about his work as a biologist, including wolf conservation and management. Eric will also answer questions such as:
· What is the Dept of Fish and Wildlife? What do they do? Why is this Dept important?
· What types of jobs are within the Dept?
· How can a young person begin to prepare himself/herself for a career in fish and wildlife?
· Why is it important for kids to learn and care about Washington's fish and wildlife?
· How do kids and adults positively and negatively impact our greater Spokane fish and wildlife?
Tour limits: 25 people
What to bring/wear: You will be outside the whole time. Dress appropriately. You can bring chairs or blankets to sit on the grass. Optional: Swimsuit and a towel (in case your kids get wet in the Little Spokane River). There is no place to change clothes so your kids may want to wear their swimsuit under their clothes. Sunscreen, insect repellent, drinks, camera.
If you want to continue playing in the river after the presentation, you are encouraged to head down the street to Pine River Park.
Safety Note: You will be on a grass lawn next to the Little Spokane River. Exploring Families does not take responsibility for the safety of your children during any Exploring Families activity.
