Free Fishing for Kids
State Sen. Kyle McCarter (R-Lebanon) is sponsoring a free fishing event for area children on Saturday, August 10 from 9am until Noon at the Ballard Nature Center near Altamont.
“I hope to see a lot of kids there with their parents,” said McCarter. “It’s going to be a fun time.”
The event is free and is being held with the cooperation of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. No pre-registration is required. Fishing poles will be available for use or you can bring your own.
The Ballard Nature Center is at 5253 East U.S. Highway 40.
