On Sunday have fun fishing and meet new friends at Sandy Wool Lake in Ed Levin Park. Help teach children how to fish and become responsible anglers. Children will get a beginner's course in fishing basics with your guidance.
"Volunteers will be totally trained at the park. Training is in the morning of the event. Volunteers must be above 18 and register in order to volunteer" said Tamara Shear, Public Information Officer. "Sandy Wool Lake will be sectioned off for the fishing event. The children come from the area surrounding Ed Levin County Park."
South Bay Fishing in the City creates opportunities for fishing, outdoor recreation and aquatic education for kids and their families. A fish cleaning station will be provided at site. Those interested in volunteering may contact the volunteer program at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (408) 355-2254 and leave your name, age, contact info, and total number of volunteers for your group.
Participants will receive instruction on the basics of fishing and how to keep local waterways clean. Become a County Parks Volunteer and play an important role in protecting and enhancing parklands.
