Lakeshore Technical College to Offer Hunting for Sustainability Course

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CLEVELAND, WI – 

CLEVELAND – Lakeshore Technical College and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources are offering Hunting for Sustainability, a non-credit course geared toward adults who would like to try hunting or learn more about gathering wild berries, mushrooms or nuts, but are not sure how to get started.

"More and more people are interested in harvesting, or taking in some other manner, more things from the wild, organisms that are sustainable if taken with conservation and preservation in mind," says Instructor Jeff Pritzl, Northeast District Wildlife Supervisor for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

Pritzl is leading the class which will be offered at the LTC Cleveland Campus on Wednesday evenings from 6-9 pm from September 18 through October 9. He believes living more sustainably could be a way to experience one of Wisconsin's grand traditions —hunting and gathering.

"This course is geared toward adults who would like to try hunting but are not sure how to get started," says Pritzl. "Hunting provides a direct avenue to living connected to the land. However, many people do not have the resources or contacts to explore this option for sustainable living."

The course is an excellent start for those looking for some encouragement, training and more knowledge to hunt and gather correctly, safely and efficiently. The cost for the class is $40.66 and more information can be found at http://gotoltc.edu/find-a-class/community-education/index.html. To register, call 1.888.GO TO LTC (1.888.468.6582, Ext. 1366)
