Annual Kids Fishing Clinic February 23 at Fort Island Trail Park

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on January 22, 2019

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Citrus County Parks and Recreation (CCPR) present a FREE Kids’ Fishing Clinic for pre-registered children between the ages of 5 and 15 on Saturday, February 23, 2019. Classes are available every 10 minutes between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

Teaching children a lifelong hobby, appreciation for our marine environment and a fun family outing are the objectives for the Kids’ Fishing Clinic.

The clinic will be held at the Fort Island Trail Park.  Because space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling Citrus County Parks and Recreation at (352) 527-7540 or visiting our website at apm.activecommunities.com/citruscountyparks.

This free clinic enables young people to learn the basics of environmental stewardship, fishing ethics, angling skills and safety.  In addition, environmental displays will provide participants with a unique chance to experience Florida’s marine life firsthand.  The main objective is to create responsible marine resource stewards by teaching children about the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems. This event is a catch-and-release activity, and all participants must be accompanied by an adult.

Individuals or companies interested in helping to sponsor this event or volunteer at the clinic should contact Citrus County Parks and Recreation at (352) 527-7540.
