As part of activities for National Fishing and Boating Week, June 3-11, DNREC’s Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police will hold its 31st Annual Youth Fishing Tournament from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, June 3 at Ingrams Pond in Millsboro, Akridge Scout Reservation in Camden and at the dog training area of Lums Pond State Park in Bear.
In an effort to encourage more Delaware children to enjoy the outdoors and outdoor-related activity year-round, the Delaware Children in Nature Coalition, of which DNREC is a member, will highlight an “Outdoor Theme of the Month” beginning in January 2017. Using the Delaware Children in Nature Outdoor Bill of Rights as a template, an “Outdoor Right,” or theme, will be selected each month.
October is “Children in Nature Month,” and to celebrate, the Delaware Children in Nature Coalition is launching a new statewide outdoor activity program for kids – “Children in Nature Prescription for Health.”
More than 720 fourth-grade students from seven elementary schools participated in the Make a Splash festival, an event that educates students on the diversity of estuary life and the importance of Delaware’s water resources.
The Nature Nook opens today at the Dover Public Library. The nook is a space for kids to learn and get excited about nature and the outdoors. DNREC’s Division of Parks and Recreation, the Children in Nature Task Force, and the Dover Public Library are collaborating on the project.
