Ballston Spa Students “Go Fishing” at Special Needs Event

By Staff Report | Education

MILTON — The 3rd Annual Special Needs Kids Fishing Event was held recently at the 4-H Training Center in Milton. Approximately 35 children in grades K-8 with physical and mental disabilities attended the event where many of them learned how to fish for the first time. 

Environmental Conservation Officers and Fish and Game Club volunteers assisted the kids with all aspects of fishing and many different species were caught including rainbow trout, bass and bluegill. 

A free lunch was provided for the children and their families and each child was given a rod and reel to take home at the end of the day. 

The New York State Conservation Officers Association, the Saratoga County 4-H, Hannaford Supermarket, Saratoga Tackle, Bob’s Bait, and multiple Saratoga County Fish and Game Clubs sponsored the event.
