Ed R. Levin Park

South Bay Fishing in the City teaches children ages 5-15 the joys of fishing and to discover opportunities to fish at lakes, ponds and streams close to home. Kids also gain an appreciation of outdoor recreation and awareness of basic environmental principles.

Volunteers will assist our core South Bay Fishing in the City volunteers with instructing participants at separate stations on the basics of fishing, including safety and ethics, knot tying, casting and rigging. Once they've received instruction from volunteer staff, kids are loaned a rod, provided with bait and tackle, and then try their luck at fishing until noon. Volunteers also escort groups of children to the shoreline to encourage and assist them as they fish.

Volunteers report at 7:00 AM at the Sandy Wool Parking Lot. The park address is 3100 Calaveras Rd Milpitas, CA 95035

Fishing skills are not required: our core volunteers are experts but they need your assistance to manage small groups while doing demonstrations at the teaching stations. You simply need to be comfortable with children and with the outdoors. If you don't know fishing, you'll also learn by watching!

Volunteers age 14-15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the event. Volunteers age 16-17 may participate without parent/guardian supervision but only if they present a completed volunteer application including a parent or guardian's signature. Application forms as available at the event but the parent or guardian must be present to sign.
