U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff from Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge, assisted by personel from two Indiana Private Lands Offices and the National Conservation Training Center, staffed a booth at the FFA Convention/Career Show in Indianapolis in October.

Approximately 60,000 high school age youth, advisors and parents attend the annual convention. Service staff talked to large numbers of youth about conservation careers during the three day event and shared resource information with many advisors and parents. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service refuge staff have a long relationship with the FFA Convention and have been recruiting young people at this event for more than 25 years.
