Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to take out two Outdoor Studies and Tourism students who are currently enrolled in a Professional Seminar course at Maryville College. The course is designed to expose students to a variety of topics, trends, and ethical conversations as well as career options with the field of outdoor recreation. During my “guest lecture” we talked about ethical fishing practices related to striper, trout, and muskie. In other words how to not kill fish in the process of making a living.
The new Outdoor Studies and Tourism major prepares students for careers that emphasize the importance of the natural environment, how humans can respectfully enjoy and interact with nature, and the value of active, outdoor experiences. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the major at Maryville College, you can check it out here:
I am really looking forward to working with Maryville College to preach the good word and fight the good fight of conservation!
