Handbook released to increase outdoor skills in schools

The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies has released its “Outdoor Skills Education Handbook: A Guide for Developing and Implementing School-based Outdoor Skills Education.” The handbook is designed to help fish and wildlife agencies and non-governmental organizations interested in working with their state departments of education, school districts, school administrators and teachers to include wildlife-related outdoor skills as part of the physical education curriculum. One of the successful case studies in the report was the result of the National Shooting Sports Foundation Hunting Heritage Partnership grant that Oklahoma received in 2010. It led to 100 school teachers becoming certified hunter education instructors and 3,100 students receiving hunter education. For more information, visit www.fishwildlife.org.
