The Twin Pines Conservation Education Center at Winona will host a Free Family Fishing Day from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, June 2.
There will be a variety of activities for everyone in the family including fishing, fish print T-shirts, pond study, casting games and more.
Participants should bring a washed T-shirt for the fish prints, but a limited supply of kid size T-shirts will be free. Volunteers will be handing out goodie bags for the kids, and there will be prizes awarded.
First fish forms and cameras will be on hand to capture special first fish-catch moment. Children receive a special certificate from Missouri’s governor.
There will be hot dogs, chips, and drinks served from noon – 2 p.m. or while supplies last. Everyone in the family can fish with no license requirements. Visitors with disabilities will be able to fish from the ADA accessible covered fishing dock constructed with funds provided by the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation. Fishing poles, tackle and bait will be available. There is no cost and registration is not required.
