On this show, you'll hear from biologists and foresters, game wardens and researchers, kids and camp instructors, and many others, on a range of topics in conservation. It's for anyone who loves Vermont's wild places and wants to be part of conserving them.
Green Mountain Conservation Camp
A visit to one of two summer camps run by the F&W dept. "When I first came here I wasn't into hunting really. I was kinda into fishing. I kinda liked hiking. But my mom and cousins went here and they all loved it, so they had me go. And when I got here I was pretty excited because I found out that it wasn't all about hunting and killing animals. It was really just about being in the outdoors and helping the outdoors. The hunting — it's not just about killing animals, it's about helping the animals to sustain themselves... I've actually gotten into hunting and trapping because of that." — 14 year old GMCC camper
It Might Be a Game Warden Who Finds You
Two game wardens talk about their experience with search and rescue in Vermont. "Usually when a person becomes a search and rescue situation, they thought they were prepared. They underestimated the situation where they were at, or circumstances changed on them and they didn't plan for it— or couldn't have planned for it." — Vermont Game Warden / K9 Spec. Robert Sterling.
