Nature Fest

This is an event staged by the staff at the Coon Rapids Dam with which we assist. We staff a fishing station located on the fishing platforms on the west end of the dam. The audience is late elementary and middle school students usually with a substantial number of chaperones. Besides fishing, students rotate through a number of other activities held nearby. Volunteers will help set up and take down daily, hand out equipment, bait hooks, take fish off hooks, watch for safety issues, and offer encouragement to participants. Volunteers should be able to lift up to 25 lbs. Volunteers do not need fishing licenses to participate. This will be a first time fishing experience for many of these students and surveys suggest that this is their favorite station in the event. Please bring a lunch, water, and sun protection.
