Calling all inquisitive explorers, young anglers, brilliant biologists, future fish nerds, and generally nature-curious kiddos! Youth Fish & Wildlife Club aims to tap into youth curiosity and wonder, foster appreciation for nature and culture in Alaska and beyond, engage young people informally with science, and teach proficiency in outdoor skills.
Join Marye and guests every Wednesday to learn something new and connect with friends:
We meet Wednesdays over Zoom (meeting ID: 161 682 2976 password: F&Wclub23!) @4PM Alaska (3PM Hawaii/5PM Pacific/6PM Mountain/7PM Central/8PM Eastern). With Anchorage School District's extended school day times to make up for snow days, we are bumping our normal 4PM spot to 4:30PM through March 1st (see below).
