MADISON - Kids of all ages can fill out a certificate to give their father a gift he'll really like -- a future fishing trip with them.
The fishing certificate can be downloaded and printed from the Department of Natural Resources EEK!, Environmental Education for Kids website, which is designed for children in grades 4-8. EEK! and the DNR fisheries management program have teamed up to offer the gift certificates. EEK! provides information about plants, animals, and the environment and receives more than 100,000 visitors a month.
"Kids and fishing naturally go together, so we thought this was a perfect opportunity to encourage kids to take someone important in their lives outside for a day of fishing and fun," says Carrie Morgan, EEK! editor.
"Have a great time, and remember to take a camera and send us a picture, and a Big Fish story," she says.
