Tom Wilcox Visits the No Girls Allowed Book Club

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

On December 13th, Tom Wilcox from the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, visited with the No Girls Allowed Book Club.

Mr. Wilcox shared stories about his past experiences working as a marine biologist and his present career working with Virginia wildlife.  He also gave the boys tips on how to photograph the wildlife in their own backyards.

Mr. Wilcox spoke with the boys about the importance of reading and writing in order to be successful in life.

As a special treat, Mr. Wilcox presented every member of the Book Club with a FREE copy of Virginia Wildlife magazine!  He also gave me some copies of Virginia Wildlife‘s 2014 calendar to give away as prizes at our next Book Club meeting!

After the presentation, Mr. Wilcox gave the boys an opportunity to ask questions and get some hands-on time with some local snakes!

Thank you to Tom Wilcox and the editors at Virginia Wildlife magazine for encouraging our young men to take an interest in reading through learning about our local wildlife.  We are incredibly appreciative!
