Youth Fishing Instructor Certification

I have another news item to share today:

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.

Instructors are part of the Youth Fishing Program, a statewide team of volunteers and Game and Parks staff who host educational fishing events.

Trainings will take place at Ponca State Park’s Education and Resource Center from 1-4 p.m. Central time.

Workshop participants will receive training and tools to conduct youth fishing clinics. These volunteers will have access to Game and Parks’ loaner fishing equipment and educational materials for events. They also will receive program incentives. Instructors are encouraged to volunteer for such Game and Parks programs as Community Fishing Nights and the Outdoor Expos.

Contact Larry Pape at larry.pape@nebraska.gov to register, which is preferred but not required.

If you love to fish and would like to share that with others, please sign up!  Our volunteers are a great asset and we could always use more!
