Refuge schedules trapper orientation

Trapper orientation classes have been scheduled for the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. Trapper orientation is mandatory for anyone wishing to trap on the refuge.

Trappers who have attended an orientation in the past do not need to attend. In order to extend the trap check requirement from every four days to every seven days, trappers must attend the snaring portion of the training as well. All classes will be held at the refuge Environmental Education Center on Ski Hill Road in Soldotna. Trapper orientation is 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 5; the snaring seminar is 9 a.m. to noon on Nov. 6. Classes are sponsored by the refuge and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

For more information, call 262-7021.
