Dr. Theresa Coble, an associate professor at Stephen F. Austin State University, is one of the principal investigators on a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Stephen F. Austin State University has received a three-year grant to develop online courses that will better equip museum workers to take on controversial and complex science topics through their exhibits and conversations with patrons. The grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services totals $247,000.
Theresa Coble, an associate professor in SFA’s Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture, said the five, graduate-level courses will help informal science educators broach complex and sometimes politically-charged subjects – like climate change.

The Kisatchie National Forest will open up its entire 600,000-plus acres for a one-day youth turkey hunt on March 16. There are 115 slots available for the hunt. Friday is the application deadline to enter a lottery-style selection process. Wildlife biologist Jonny Fryar of the Calcasieu Ranger District said this will be the first time that all of Kisatchie will be open for a youth hunt. He said the event comes a week before the wild turkey season opener, and gives children ages 8-17 a better chance to call in a turkey.
