Conservation Awareness: Hunting

November 16, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

People hunt for many different reasons. Free-range protein, an intimate connection with nature, and management of wildlife populations are a few of the core themes echoed by hunters. However, there are a myriad of reasons why hunting is important to wildlife conservation around the globe. Join Jamey Emmert and Ken Fry, communication specialists with the Ohio Division of Wildlife, to discuss hunting in Ohio, why and how hunters pursue wildlife, and how hunting strongly supports the Buckeye State’s economy and the protection of its vital natural resources. This is an excellent opportunity to ask questions, share thoughts, and discuss hunting to gain a broader understanding of what it is all about.
This presentation is part of the Land Conservancy’s Conservation Awareness series. The goal of this series is to build awareness on topics that affect our environment and the communities in which we live, allowing us to be better stewards in protecting and preserving our natural resources.
