Dec 10: Fishing Education Instructor Workshop

Pass on your love of fishing by becoming a Fishing Education Instructor, certified through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. 

Who: 4-H volunteers/educators, classroom teachers, community center staff, fishing club members and more!
What: This training will certify you as a Fishing Education Instructor and provide you with tips and materials to lead fishing programs. We’ll even go fishing to do some practice teaching. Successful program models include 4-H projects, adult education, community fishing outings, meet-ups for young adults, after-school fishing clubs, summer enrichment classes, day camps, school-family events, and helping scouts earn merit badges. More information on this certificate can be found on the Wisconsin DNR website.
When: Saturday, Dec. 10 from 9 am-3 pm.
Where: Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center OR Virtual via zoom.
Cost: FREE
Accommodations: This event will be hosted inside an ADA-accessible building with free parking. Most of the learning will occur through a PowerPoint that will have automatic captions enabled and the speakers will use microphones. After the PowerPoint, we will go fishing outside which may require traversing up to half a mile over uneven terrain.
If you need to request accommodations such as printed presentation slides, language interpreters, all-terrain wheelchairs or something else, please reach out to Rachael Lewandowski-Sarette by emailing or calling 608-890-1137.
We look forward to hosting you along with Theresa Stabo, DNR Angler Outreach Program Specialist.
