CELEBRATE: National Hunting and Fishing Day
The department will also hold events in Minden, Monroe and Woodworth.
“One of the best ways we can create a better public understanding of hunting and fishing is to create a better public awareness of the important role that outdoors men and women have played in conservation and improving our natural resources,” said LDWF Public Information Assistant Director Thomas Gresham.
“National Hunting and Fishing Day helps to build appreciation and increase participation in outdoor sports. It is also an opportunity for people with no previous experience to learn about the values and enjoyment of outdoor pursuits.”
LDWF invites people of all ages in the state to celebrate this year’s event at the Waddill Outdoor Education Center.
The Baton Rouge event offers hands-on activities including canoeing, fishing, sports shooting and duck and goose calling.
This year the department will again have a catfish pool where very young anglers can catch their first fish and get souvenir photos.
The event also offers numerous outdoor demonstrations and exhibits including Ducks Unlimited, Coastal Conservation Association, Operation Game Thief, National Wild Turkey Federation, Louisiana Wildlife Federation, plus many more.
National Hunting and Fishing Day is open to the public and free of charge. The Waddill Outdoor Education Center is located at 4142 Flannery Road. This event is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
