RAY PARK FOUNDATION
MISSION IN ACTION
OUR MISSION IS TO CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUTH TO EXPERIENCE THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Fishing is the gateway to the outdoors! This completely free event invites all kids 3-13 to get hooked on fishing. We give away fishing poles for the first 100 kids at the event! We have an additional 200 fishing poles on hand for them to borrow. Kids have a true fishing experience, on the docks, banks and through the weeds of the 2.5 acre fishing pond at the Whistlestop Park in Byron Center, MI.
Kids can hone their fishing skills by visiting the three learning stations. They can master their cast at the casting station, learn how to bait their own hook using gummy worms at the Bait Station, and learn more about Michigan fish by visiting the Conservation officer at the All About Fish Station.
