There will be a hunter safety training course offered March 3,5 and 7. The course, sponsored by the Greene County conservation board, is scheduled for 6:30 to 9 pm on Tuesday and Thursday. These will be held at the Milwaukee Road Depot in Jefferson. The class on Saturday will be located at Slininger Woods from 8 am to 4 pm. All three classes must be attended. Each participant is asked to bring a sack lunch on Saturday.
