Youth and adults can celebrate Free Fishing Day and learn about outdoor recreation activities.

Bring the Family! Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the City of Abilene, Abilene Zoo, and various other organizations will provide outdoor education activities for kids and adults.

Participants can enjoy fishing education and fishing for catfish at the Neighborhood Fishin’ Program’s Grover Nelson small pond.

The event is FREE and also promotes outdoor recreation opportunities in The Big Country, wellness, environmental conservation and stewardship. Activities will include archery, air rifles, wildlife education, plant identification activities, backpacking and camping demonstrations, geocaching, and more!
