Environmental Learning for Kids Fishing Clinic at Chatfield State Park

The National Park Service helps fund the Environmental Learning for Kids program, which for the state of Colorado, holds over 190 activities each year. Not only does the program bring the outdoors to children but it also teaches high school and college students how to become Urban Rangers. With a trip down to Chatfield State Park on a bright, sunny day, younger children learned how to fish and the importance of being a responsible angler. The fishing clinic started with presentations by the Urban Rangers, followed by practice casting and finally a bunch of hours fishing out on one of the park’s lakes.
