1992 Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources Conservation Education Program Review

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources conducted a survey of students from 38 high schools (1,459 useable respondents) to ascertain the effects of the Conservation Education Program. Of the surveyed individuals, 15.7% had attended Department classes and camps, 55.3 % had attended Department classes only, and 29% had not attended any Department programs. The students were asked questions on the environment, attitudes toward outdoor recreation including hunting and fishing, and their own potential for supporting outdoor recreation. Results showed that students who had attended Department programs were significantly more interested in: environmental issues, participating in outdoor recreation, and encouraging their own children to participate in outdoor recreation.
