Kids lets go fishing
 
Southeast Florida is unique, having a diversity of aquatic ecosystems such as freshwater marshes and swamps of the Everglades, estuaries, seagrass beds, and a three-track coral reef system spanning down the southeastern coast – all teaming with incredible plant and animal life. Protecting and conserving these vulnerable habitats is a must for our future generations. People need to understand they play an important part in protecting these natural resources and why they need to do so. If we don’t open the eyes to the children of today, the children of the future may never get a chance to experience what we have taken for granted. Creating stewards for these amazing ecosystems is the key for preserving our waters of tomorrow. What better way to do this, than through the fun-filled sport that brings families and people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and abilities together, fishing!
