Michigan State University Department of Fisheries and Wildlife invites teachers, educators and volunteers to 2 days of: “Place Based Learning through Sportfishing and Aquatic Resource Education”. This workshop is open to anyone, even those who may want to learn a bit more about fishing to be able to volunteer for local fishing events, or even teach you own family!

Coordinated through Michigan State University’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, This workshop is a partnership with MSU Extension, MSU 4-H Youth Development, Department of Natural Resources, Michigan United Conservation Clubs, schools, and community service organizations and many others to educate young people about our natural resources through FISHING. This is a workshop based on the Project FISH philosophy of hands on, multiple-contact sportfishing and aquatic resource education. We will offer activities in Aquatic Ecology, Tackle Crafting, People and Fish Management and actual Angling Skills. Participants will leave with curriculum activities, equipment, even a fishing rod & reel, and access to supplies and resources to begin a successful fishing program/club with children in the classroom or in an after school setting. The workshop is partially funded through community funds, grants, and donors to Project F.I.S.H. (lunch will be provided)
