There are still spots open for Kids Fishing Day, held on National Grandparents Day, Sunday, September 13, at Founders Fishing Pier in Founders Sports Park, 35500 W. 8 Mile Rd., Farmington Hills.
The Farmington Hills Nature Center is hosting this special event that offers children ages 5 to 18, along with grandparents, parents, family, and friends the opportunity to share the fun of catch and release fishing in the pond at Founders Park.
Each child will be provided with a fishing rod and reel, bait, and instructions. The program takes place entirely outdoors, so dress for the weather and bring a water bottle, sunglasses, and your favorite hat to protect you from the sun. There will be plenty of room to spread out and distance from other families.
Due to COVID-19, temperature checks and health screening questions will be required upon arrival. Participants need to wear a mask and/or stay six feet apart. Participants will be emailed prior to the program if there are any updates regarding precautions.
Children must be accompanied by an adult. The cost is $5 per child. Three separate sessions run 9-10 a.m.; 10:30-11:30 a.m.; and 12-1 p.m. Preregistration for each child is required; visit recreg.fhgov.com.
