Daily Herald report

To celebrate June as Leave No Child Inside month, Barrington-based Citizens for Conservation will host a class for kids on seining -- a method of fishing that employs a seine or dragnet -- on Friday, June 13.

CFC's interns, along with seining expert and longtime CFC volunteer Tom Vanderpoel, will lead the class, which takes place from 1 to 5 p.m., beginning at the organization's headquarters, 459 W. Route 22, Barrington.

From there, participants will drive to a local site and use seining nets to see what is in the water. Will there be frogs, fish, mussels, larvae? Be prepared to get wet and muddy. Please dress according to the weather.

This class is open to children ages 6 and older. Caregivers are required to attend. Class size is limited to 20 children, and the registration deadline is June 10.

Registration forms can be found at or by calling CFC at (847) 382-SAVE (7283).
