Students in the Outdoors Club will participate in various projects on club day. The projects will be based on best management. While the projects are not graded, students will be expected to actively participate if they join the club. Additionally, projects will be supplemented with guest speakers when available.
The types of projects that will be addresses include: water quality (Can trout live in this stream?); macroinvertebrate surveys; erosion control; habitat requirements for various species of fish and wildlife; BMPs for the whitetail deer; food plot farming; trail camera photography; furbearer management.
For those older club members with their own transportation, additional community service opportunities will be available. On most Fridays after school, we will help the Reynoldsville Sportsman’s Club in rearing trout. This typically involves cleaning the pens, cutting grass, shoveling snow, and in the spring, stocking trout around
We plan to continue preserving a youth fishing area along the Sandy Lich Creek in Reynoldsville. The area is designated, children 12 years and younger will be able to fish in town for trout without the intrusion of more experienced adults. The club keeps the area posted, picks up litter and stocks trout.
If you are interested in the outdoors and are committed to participating, then maybe the Outdoors Club is for you!
