Josh Vance, Wildlife Manager at Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area, will be at Cacapon Nature Center at 6:00 p.m. presenting the history of wildlife conservation. Josh brings much wildlife knowledge from his experience of working locally in the Eastern Panhandle. He has spent the last eight years employed at Shannondale Springs and Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Areas with the WV Department of Natural Resources. He earned an M.S. and B.S in Wildlife & Fisheries from West Virginia University and is also a certified biologist through The Wildlife Society. In addition to these achievements, Josh is also an adjunct professor at Shepherd University.

Join Josh this evening to learn more about key factors that lead to deforestation and how many species were driven to almost the brink of extinction. Discover some influential work by Aldo Leopold and others that turned the tides that helped develop the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.
