Five members of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) top leadership will participate in a panel at this weekend’s Fred Hall Show at the Long Beach Convention Center.
They will be part of a panel discussion taking place Saturday, March 8 at noon at the Mammoth Lakes Seminar Stage. Director Charlton H. Bonham, Deputy Director of Wildlife and Fisheries Dan Yparraguirre, Chief of Law Enforcement Michael Carion, Chief of Fisheries Stafford Lehr and Marine Region Manager Craig Shuman will answer questions from the public on a variety of fish and wildlife related topics. Pete Gray, host of Let’s Talk Hook Up, Southern California’s premiere fishing radio show, will moderate the panel.
CDFW will also have several booths at the show. CDFW staff will answer questions and all licenses, tags and report cards will be available for purchase. The new 2014 CDFW Warden Stamp will also be available ($5) to help fund the purchase of equipment for CDFW enforcement.
Show attendees can learn about becoming a wildlife officer at the law enforcement trailer on the patio of the Long Beach Convention Center. The trailer is full of beautiful fish and wildlife mounts and contains a free laser shot game. There’s also a fishing pond on the patio stocked with rainbow trout for kids to fish from the CDFW Fillmore Hatchery. An antique CFDW truck will also be on display.
Admission is $15 for adults and children under 16 and active military personnel are admitted free.
