GLENVILLE, WV - Several Glenville State University students and staff volunteered at the West Virginia Trappers Association (WVTA) Fur Auction. The auction was held at the Gilmer County Recreation Center in March.

Students Ethan Dawson, Elijah Dick, Cierra Heine, Evan Jedamski, Lexi Pletcher, Marc Radcliff, and Katelyne Rollyson were joined by Lecturer of Land Surveying Jacob Petry and Academic Laboratory Instructional Assistant Tom Snyder at the auction.

The students assisted with keeping track of the furs and helped move, hang, and organize the furs during the grading process.

“Volunteering at the Trappers Convention was a great learning experience. Trappers perform a valuable function that helps control wildlife populations, which also protects prey species and benefits natural habitats and agriculture. That has relevance to the natural resource management element of my studies at Glenville State University,” said Jedamski.

The annual WVTA auction is the only such auction held in West Virginia.
