How to help Lake County forest preserves teach kids to fish
The Lake County Forest Preserve District is seeking volunteers who enjoy fishing and want to share their knowledge with children to assist with summer fishing camps.
The camps, beginning in June, are held in the morning at Independence Grove Forest Preserve in Libertyville. Campers are eager to learn more about fish, bait, lures and techniques.
Volunteers will be trained on how the camps are run and what they should be teaching. For more information, contact Mark Hurley, volunteer coordinator, at (847) 968-3324 or mhurley@LCFPD.org.
