Teach Kids to Fish For Life is a company that gets kids from
inner cities hooked on fishing. Students also learn about about
writing, storytelling, the environment and journaling, from a
Lewis and Clark re-enactor who played the role of Silas Goodrich,
expert fisherman, during the bicentennial in 2004 and 2006. This is
accomplished through displays, classes, seminars, presentations,
clinics, and other means designed to teach and promote our program.
The program also supports disadvantaged youth and children with
special needs by hosting a number of day-long fishing adventures.
We are very excited to tell you that Teach Kids To Fish For
Life has come a long way during the past six months. In addition to
establishing a home base at Wyandotte County Lake and Schlagle Library, we have
established a dialogue with the KS Department of Wildlife & Parks, Kansas
Wildscape and the Kansas Association for Conservation and Environment
Education. This website, currently under development, is the next step in bringing our message to
our audience: kids, parents, educators, wildlife enthusiasts, and anyone with an interest in giving kids a positive outdoor experience.
We promote fishing as a healthy means of having fun, as well as an
opportunity to connect with the community and schools.
