It’s limited to the first 50 people (adults and children) who sign up. Register here.
Learn about aquatic environments through learning activities, educational materials, aquatic field trips and fishing experiences while sharing the experience with your student/child. Online registration is required.
Families will start the day by participating in a few learning stations and games focusing on the following:
- Backyard bass
- Great life vest race
- Fish species
- Care of the catch
Event participants will also spend time fishing on the pier putting what they learned to the test!
This is a great family event for the homeschool community that will not only educate parents and students alike, but they’ll have fun learning about species of fish and the environment.
A few things to keep in mind before registering:
- This event is open to homeschool educators and students ages 8 and up. Unfortunately younger children are not permitted due to open lake access while fishing.
