Project FISH at the Wittenbach Wege Center


Michigan State University Department of Fisheries and Wildlife invites teachers, educators and volunteers to three evenings of Sportfishing and Aquatic Resource Education at the Wittenbach Wege Center, 11715 Vergennes SE, Lowell, Michigan, on December 4, 12, and 14, from 5:30-9:00pm each day. 

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‚Äôs Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, this workshop is a partnership with MSU Extension, MSU 4-H Youth Development, Department of Natural Resources, Wittenbach/Wege Agiscience Center, 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. 

Contact: Mark Stephens at 517-432-2700, steph143@msu.edu. Space is limited. Registration deadline is December 1. Registration info at http://www.projectfish.org/lowell2017.pdf
