Join us tomorrow for Fishing For Fun: A Family Affair – Saturday May 21 at Pioneer Park

kid-smile-fishing_300sq_4webFamily fishing season is almost here! Bring the whole family to Pioneer Park, on Saturday, May 21 for the first ever Fishing for Fun, A Family Affair, offering games, activities, an ice cream social, and important information about healthy fish consumption for families.

The Sierra Fund, South Yuba River Citizens League and Wolf Creek Community Alliance are hosting this fun and educational event to celebrate our watersheds and the fun of fishing with kids of all ages, while raising awareness around which fish are safe to eat and which should be “catch and release.” This event will be held in conjunction with the second annual Post-It Day volunteer effort to post fish consumption advisories at regional lakes and reservoirs.

Kids can join in on several age-appropriate activities and games, while teens and parents have an opportunity to talk with experts about fishing locations, the history of mercury in our area, efforts underway to clean it up, and how to protect their family by choosing which fish to eat. Free ice cream will be provided from 2-3:30pm (while supplies last), and prizes will be awarded at 3pm.
