Vamos a Pescar: Program to introduce Hispanic families to fishing in Emporia area
Vamos a Pescar, a national grant-based program focused on introducing Hispanic families to fishing, will feature three dates for upcoming events in Lyon County.
The program will include three events from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on May 1, Aug. 21 and Sept. 25 at Peter Pan Park and Camp Alexander in Emporia. Families must attend all three activities, according to organizer Phil Taunton.
"Of course we teach fishing, but to me it gives us the ability to teach our Hispanic community conservation, rules and regulations, respect and the true meaning of taking care of our natural resources," Taunton said.
Space is limited, so reserve by calling Patricia Sáenz-Reyes at 620-341-2394, Sally Sánchez at 620-366-1094 or Phil Taunton at 620-794-5373.
During each of the events, participants will learn about the sport, receive free fishing equipment and enjoy a family picnic.
