“CAST AWAY CLUB” TO KICK OFF ON SATURDAY, JUNE 19th
CCA Readies 2nd Year of Youth, Nature/Angling Program
Parents and youth leaders agree about the value of Skidaway youngsters not only spending time outdoors but also learning more about our island’s varied natural environment and our abundant fish and wildlife species. A great way to help achieve these goals is through The Skidaway Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association’s (CCA) youth nature and fishing program, the “CAST AWAY CLUB.”
Inaugurated in the summer of 2019 and paused last year through the COVID-19 pandemic, this popular program is set to debut on Saturday, June 19th, 9:00 to 10:30 at our Kid’s Fishing Lagoon located adjacent to the Oakridge Fire Station, near Crossover Bridge on Westcross at Log Landing Rd. This first session will include hands on learning about local fish topped off with a session of Fish Bingo (with prizes!) and time for family fishing. Rods, reels and bait will be provided by CCA volunteers.
Monthly programs through the summer will feature sessions on bees, bats, a variety of reptiles and hands-on nature crafts. Summer sessions are limited to 20 children (12 and under, accompanied by parent/guardian). Registration is required by June 17 at ccaskidaway.org.
