Yes, I have blogged about this before just recently, but the second of these workshops is coming up and we want to get the word out again:
Become a certified youth fishing instructor this fall
LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will certify youth fishing instructors in Lincoln and North Platte this fall.
Workshop participants will receive training and tools to conduct youth fishing clinics. These volunteers will have access to Nebraska Game and Parks Commission loaner fishing equipment and educational materials for events. They also will receive program incentives.
Instructors are a key part of Game and Parks’ Youth Fishing Program, and they are encouraged to volunteer for such Game and Parks programs as Community Fishing Nights and the Outdoor Expos.
The workshops, which are scheduled from 2-6 p.m., are:
Sept. 29 – Nebraska Game and Parks Outdoor Education Center, 4703 N. 44th St., Lincoln
Oct. 20 – North Platte Fish Hatchery, 444 E. State Farm Road, North Platte
Contact Larry Pape at [email protected] to register, which is preferred but not required.
I have not met all of our volunteer youth fishing instructors, but I have met a few and I have been very impressed with them. They share our passion, dedication, and are a wealth of knowledge, patience, and effort. If you think you have those qualities and would like to get involved, we can always use more help! Do it!
