Go FishIN Crew Captain workshops
Fishing workshops for educators and youth leaders, called Go FishIN Crew Captain workshops, will be offered at the Natural Resources Education Center at Fort Harrison State Park, Oct. 14 and Nov. 18, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., both days.
The programs teach adults who work with youth about fish biology, Indiana's aquatic ecosystems, fish management in Indiana, basic angling skills, and angler ethics.
Participants completing the course become "Crew Captains" and can then take the knowledge and skills to their classrooms and community. Crew Captains also can receive educational materials and fishing equipment for free to use when teaching the program and taking kids fishing.
No fishing experience is needed, and no fishing license is required during the workshop. All fishing equipment will be provided. The usual gate fee will be waived.
The workshop is free but advance registration is required by e-mailing nrec@dnr.IN.gov or calling (317) 562-1338. For questions on the details of the workshop, e-mail Clint Kowalik (Go FishIN coordinator) at email@example.com.
