A great catch!

A great catch!

Every Tuesday I volunteer at Winona’s Maplewood Townhomes.  It is called Project Get Outdoors and we cater to all youths.  Today was my program day and we were set to go fishing in the backwaters.  Many of my kids had never fished before.  We started with how to cast and bait a hook and the kids started fishing. 

For nearly two hours the kids caught fish, tangled lines, and casted into the trees.  I kept busy untangling lines, taking lines out of trees, and tying on new hooks.

After fishing we nature hiked to the pavilion where we had lunch, painted some fish, and played on the playground.
