To make this a successful event for the children, fish have been purchased to stock the pond for the Derby.  Prizes for the best fisherperson in each of three age categories, plus a prize for the most fish caught will be awarded.  Profits from the event are earmarked for the Environmental Education Center Fund for the Arboretum.

Bring your fishing gear and bait.  We will also provide bait, if you need it.  Need more time-stay on after the event and fish to your heart’s content.  The Arboretum is beautiful this time of year!  Bring some sandwiches and drinks and stay to enjoy a picnic lunch.  Join us on June 26th and get a head start on summer fun!  This is a rain/shine event, please dress accordingly.
