To celebrate June as Leave No Child Inside month, Citizens for Conservation will present "Seining with Citizens for Conservation" from 1-5 p.m. on Friday, June 13.
In this popular class with CFC's interns and seining expert and longtime CFC volunteer Tom Vanderpoel, you will use seining nets to see what is in the water. Kids will examine their catch for frogs, fish, mussels, larvae.
Participants need to be prepared to get wet and muddy. Dress according to the weather -- layers are best. Water shoes/boots or closed-toe shoes are required and must be worn at all times. Bring your own drinking water and use mosquito spray at home.
Meet at Citizens for Conservation headquarters, 459 W. Highway 22, in Barrington, and then drive to the local site. This class is open to children ages 6 and older with caregiver. Caregivers are required to attend.
No bathrooms are available once you leave CFC.
Class size is limited to 20 children, so register early.
Completed registration forms are due by Tuesday, June 10. Registration forms can be found at www.citizensforconservation.org or call (847) 382-7283 for information.
