Gone Fishin’


What’s new at the Nature Center? Fishing!

Yesterday our homeschool students and their families ventured off-property to Lake Murphy (just down the road) to learn about lake ecology… and to just plain “go fishing”! Everyone went home happy after catching (and releasing) a fish, like the one above.

(As an aside, the fish in the picture might be a little smaller than it appears!)

For all of you fishermen, fisherwomen and fisherkids out there who can’t wait to spend a lazy afternoon with rod and reel, check out the IA DNR fishing website for rules, regulations and safety tips.

And happy fishing!
