BELLBROOK - Greene County Parks & Trails invites children to angle for some summer fun with its annual Kids’ Fishing Derby from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday May 31, at Spring Lakes Park, 2191 Ferry Road.
Children ages of 6-14 are invited to participate. Participants must bring their own bait and tackle; a limited amount of bait will be for sale at the Spring Lakes Park Bait House. Awards will be given for largest fish caught and most fish caught in two age categories.
“It’s so important to expose children to nature and to the outdoors at a young age,” said Greene County Parks Chief Naturalist Cris Barnett. “By developing an appreciation for our natural areas, children will be dedicated to protecting our green spaces. Greene County is fortunate to have an extensive system of parks, trails and outdoor recreational opportunities. We need to both enjoy them and preserve them.”
A suggested donation of $2 per participants is requested. Prizes donated by Wal-Mart and Bass Pro Shops. For more information about Greene County Parks & Trails call 937-562-6440, email firstname.lastname@example.org or join us on Facebook at Greene County Parks.
