The student chapter of The Wildlife Society will present its seventh annual Family Field Day from 12:30 p.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at the Frich Biology Building.

The public may attend this free event conducted in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

Held rain or shine, the field day includes an archery demonstration, a fly-tying demonstration and casting contest, conservation alkss with live animals, a display of animal tracks, and displays of pelts from Pennsylvania fur-bearers, along with information about bluebird box construction.

Refreshments will be available for purchase.

Dr. Carol Bocetti, the club’s adviser, said all stations will be open for the duration of the event.

Cal U’s Annual Family Day Weekend also is taking place this weekend, so field day activities will be held in a prominent location, not far from Old Main.

“We are hoping to catch families coming from the Welcome Center,” said Bocetti, an associate professor in the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences.

“We are pleased our event is taking place on this weekend, because it offers Cal U families an enjoyable learning experience.”

Cal U’s student chapter became a national member of The Wildlife Society in 1996. The mission of the society is to represent and serve the professional community of scientists, managers, educators, technicians, planners and others who work actively to study, manage and conserve wildlife and habitats worldwide.
