Students in Erich R. Doebler’s Wildlife Management class (FOR245) recently visited Montour Preserve, which is managed by the Montour Area Recreation Commission, to learn more about wildlife, nature preserves and the regulations associated with operating such facilities. “This was an excellent opportunity for the students to see in person various birds, ducks and mammals that we have discussed and learned about in the classroom and lab settings,” said Doebler, a member of Penn College’s forestry faculty. Additionally, the class went to Lake Chillisquaque to understand the importance of that human-created lake and its history, and learned about the various fish species found within. Commission director Bob Stoudt kept the Visitor Center open for the students past 4 p.m. so that they could spend as much time as possible at the Danville site. “This is an excellent opportunity for any generation to learn more about wildlife and to simply relax and spend time in nature.”
