Class teaches volunteers safe, accurate reporting of wildlife crimes

OLYMPIA -- Eyes in the Woods, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting natural resources, will sponsor a Nov. 1 training class on non-confrontational approaches to reporting wildlife crimes.

"Crime Observation and Reporting" is scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. at the Capitol City Rifle and Pistol Club, 14318 Littlerock Road S.W., Olympia. The free training will be provided by officers from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Program.

Eyes in the Woods stresses a non-confrontational approach to reporting wildlife crimes, through the use of trained citizen volunteers. The training does not confer law enforcement authority upon the volunteers, but instead provides tools for the average citizen to use in properly recording and reporting such offenses as hunting, wildlife or habitat violations. The methods used by volunteers are designed to enhance detection of offenders and to help deter future violations.

For more information about Eyes in the Woods, or to sign up for the class, call (360) 438-2915 or (360) 352-0616. The organization also may be reached by email at
