Rick Roy, hunter education coordinator for the Lake Almanor Basin, announced that the Department of Fish and Wildlife is sponsoring a multi-day “traditional” hunter education course, scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 6 and 7, and Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 13 and 14, at the Westwood Community Center, 275 Birch St., in Westwood, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The fee is $10, which includes all classroom instruction.
Students must attend all classes — 10 hours total — to qualify for a hunter certificate. Lessons include knowing your gun, gun safety, laws governing hunting, knowing your way around the woods and your responsibilities as a hunter.
California hunter education, a state mandated program required for all hunters, is an effort to raise safety and conservation awareness.
