Sylvania FFA officers hold conservation education classes for fifth-graders, earn volunteer hours

The past two weeks have been very exciting for Mrs. Reed's fifth-grade science class at Sylvania. Will Dodd and the Sylvania FFA Officers have been teaching hunters education to the next generation of conservationists. This year's fifth-graders have learned what it means to be a safe and responsible hunter, along with learning about firearm safety, tree stand safety and wildlife conservation. The students will come away from this course with their hunter’s education certificate that they must have to hunt and eventually purchase a hunting license when of the age of 16 in Alabama, this certificate is valid in all 50 states. As for the FFA officers, the time spent volunteering will count toward volunteer hours for service projects along with volunteer hours with the Alabama Fish and Game.
