Family Nature Club: Fishing Fun at Ridge Run!

May 21 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Family Nature Club Fishing Fun at Ridge Run!

Spend the afternoon on the banks of Wells Lake in Ridge Run Park with a pole in your hand and hopefully a few bites on your line! Learn how to tie on a hook, bait your hook, and safely cast your line into the water. We will try to catch and identify each fish before releasing them back into their home.

We’ll bring some poles and bait for folks to use – or bring your own. 🙂 Fishing license required for adults. Baits and poles will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. Children must be accompanied by an adult. This space is stroller friendly!

Family Nature Club is a free offering to our community designed for kids, teens, and their families. We facilitate outdoor, environmental-education based experiences for families to enjoy together.
