The Fishing in the Natural State Program was created in 2016 for use in any Arkansas school. The primary focus is on grades 4-12.

The Ponca Elk Educ aion center will host the program on Tuesday, Feb. 11, from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

The program can also accommodate civic clubs and organizations. Although the primary goal of the program is to create lifelong anglers, so much more is included. The curriculum provided to schools includes eight units covering fish and fishing, ecology, habitats, and the human impact on the environment. These lessons can be used in any type of classroom including, but not limited to science, math, English, and physical education.

To register, e-mail lauren.cannon@agfc.ar.gov - please include your name, school, and phone number.
