Game and Parks will certify youth fishing instructors at Ponca State Park

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will certify youth fishing instructors at a workshop Feb. 13 at Ponca State Park.

Workshop participants will receive training and tools to conduct youth fishing clinics.
