Field days are for trapper education students who have completed the online or home-study course and are required to receive a Michigan Trapper Education Safety Certificate.
The event, co-sponsored by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pokagon Campground, located at 58620 Sink Road. A parent or guardian must accompany any child 10 years old or younger.
There is no charge, but students must pre-register with Sgt. Tom Wanless at 517-335-3410. Students taking the online option must present their certificate of completion on the day of the field day. Students who wish to take the home-study option must receive their manual a minimum of one week prior to the field day. For more information, contact Sgt. Wanless.
