On Wednesday, January 25, Ric Hartman, Superintendent of the Springville Division of Wildlife Resources office, spoke to students at lunch about careers with the DWR and its various departments.  Students were able to learn about the many different areas of focus with the DWR and their duties. 

Most came away impressed by the sheer number of jobs for the State of Utah that need to be done to manage the fish and wildlife we have.  Students commented also on the fact that Mr. Hartman enjoyed his job immensely due to the variety of duties and experiences he has had.
