DNR Angler Education Workshop
Friday, June 15, 2012
10 am – 4 pm
Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center, Wisconsin Dells
Come to Upham Woods and learn best practices of how to teach youth in your 4-H club, school, or group how to fish! Angler Education workshops provide training for adult volunteers to offer fishing programs in their schools and communities. The program introduces children to basic fishing skills and connects them to Wisconsin's lakes and streams.
Adults who attend the workshops receive free materials that they can use to teach their own angler education courses and help guide adventures in local water resources investigations. Fishing equipment and other supplies are available for loan to instructors.
Youth leaders, classroom teachers, fishing club members and civic leaders are encouraged to attend as a team or form one at the workshop. Start an after-school fishing club, offer it as a summer enrichment class, build a school event around a fishing clinic, or include one as part of a community festival! Materials are correlated to Wisconsin's academic standards for grades 4 through 8, making the program an easy fit in the classroom. Additional materials are available for younger and older learners.
Lunch is provided! The program is free but you must submit a $15 workshop commitment fee, refundable upon arrival at the workshop. You may cancel up to three days prior to the workshop and your check will be returned.
What to Bring to a Workshop:
- Empty 3-ring binder
- Pen or pencil
Registration is due by June 8th.
