Every child counts, as does every single
experience. But if you have a group such as a fishing-related
business, fishing club or civic group, you may want to organize a
kids fishing event. The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission is always interested in having sponsors and
volunteers to help with kids fishing clinics. Unfortunately,
given staff and budget considerations, we are limited in when and
where we can sponsor events, but if we cannot be there in person,
we can still help ensure you have the tools to put on your own
event in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
