The Adams State University biology program will host a presentation about job opportunities with Colorado Parks and Wildlife and their hiring process at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, in Porter Hall room 218. Luke Hoffman, Class of 2010, a Colorado district wildlife manager, will discuss job components of District Wildlife Managers as well as the DWM testing and training process.

"I encourage people to attend this information session who enjoy working outdoors, are self-motivated and willing to work long hours, and have a passion for Colorado's wildlife, hunting and wildlife management," Hoffman said.

He earned his degree physical geography-resource management and planning under Dr. Jared Beeton, professor of earth science. "I was one of the first students to graduate Dr. Beeton's program." Hoffman had also taken a lot of biology classes. This blending of biology and geography was later modeled by the earth science and biology programs to give students a good blend of both disciplines, which resulted in the creation the physical geography and conservation emphasis degree plan. "Taking classes in various science-based disciplines gave me a broad background in biology, geography, and geology that prepared me for much of what I do in my job now."
