More about Hannah in her words…
I’ve participated with the PA Game Commission assisting to duck, goose, song bird, and barn owl band; do bear check-ins, Avian Flu testing, and deer chronic wasting studies. I’ve also had opportunities to work and learn at Red Creek Wildlife Center and Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area. I continue to actively engage in Monarch Butterfly activities such as tagging, lecturing and creating waystations. I’ve just certified my second (of three) Monarch waystations with Monarch Watch. The Wildlife Society of Pennsylvania awarded my Monarch poster board 1st prize at last year’s convention. I’ve also submitted photos to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. I’ve been a guest speaker on WEEU: Jack’s Backyard morning show. Currently, I am training my German Shorthair Pointer, Bella, to become a great hunting dog. Additionally I am an active participant in my school’s FFA program, competing in CDE’s at Penn State.
What Hannah has to say about Wildlife Leadership Academy:
This past July, I attended the Pennsylvania Ruffed Grouse field school, as an Assistant Team Leader. This opportunity presented because of my extensive outreach last year after attending Bucktails. The experiences as both a student and a Team Leader were fantastic. At the Academy, we were taught skills that help us to become leaders in our community. By becoming ambassadors for wildlife conservation, a sustained wildlife legacy for future generations is ensured. I feel so strongly about the program that I actively engage the PAY IT FORWARD program. If I can give back to WLA and the mission it aspires to, I’ve achieved even greater success in my goal to becoming an Ambassador for Wildlife Conservation.
