Enjoy this rare opportunity for catch-and-release fishing at the Arboretum! First you’ll learn the basics of baiting a hook and using a traditional cane pole. We’ll have fun trying to catch one of our many freshwater fish species, identifying turtles, and learning how exciting it is to be an angler. Come enjoy an afternoon at the pond with us!

Wear walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.
