Project FISH Instructor Training
Date: March 10, 2015 - March 11, 2015
Location: Room 152 Natural Resources Building, Michigan State University
9:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
Coordinated through the Michigan State University (MSU) Department of Community Sustainability (formerly the Department of Community, Agriculture, Recreation and Resource Studies), this workshop is a partnership with MSU Extension, MSU 4-H Youth Development, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Michigan United Conservation Clubs, schools in the mid-Michigan area, community service organizations and many others to educate young people about our natural resources through fishing.
This workshop is based on the Project FISH (Friends Involved in Sportfishing Heritage) philosophy of hands-on, multiple-contact sport fishing and aquatic resource education. The event offers activities in aquatic ecology, tackle crafting, people and fish management, and angling. Participants will leave with curriculum activities, equipment, a fishing rod and reel, and access to supplies and resources to begin a successful fishing program or club with children in the classroom or in an after-school setting. The workshop is partially funded through MSU Extension, and grants and donors to Project FISH.
