Fountain Creek Family Fun Day - booth work

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: TROUT UNLIMITED

We would like help setting up our booth, which is a tent with a table. The Family Fun Day has an estimated attendance of 500 people. Our booth will offer the youth an opportunity to cast a fly rod to hoola hoops on the ground, to view and possible help tie a fly, and demonstrate a board game to promote education about the Greenback Cutthroat Trout. Then, we will break down the booth and rods.

The place we set up is a distance from the parking lot. The Nature Center will use a golf cart to carry our heavy equipment but we may need to carry rods.

The volunteers will -
help set up the booth
teach casting a fly rod
teach tying a fly
teach the board game
talk to youth about conservation and the Greenback Cutthroat Trout.
