What’s better than spending the day at Discovery World in Milwaukee? Enjoying free admission to a variety of interactive exhibits thanks to the U.S. Forest Service!
Sunday, May 5 was a day to remember for Learn 2 Fish With Us! More than 2,000 fishing enthusiasts of all ages visited the Learn 2 Fish station and learned how to identify fish, cast and tie knots, setting a Learn 2 Fish record for number of individuals educated at a single event.
“This was a huge event for Learn 2 Fish With Us,” Captain Greg Karch, founder of Learn 2 Fish, said. “Sharing our passion for fishing and giving back to the community is what we do best, and I’m looking forward to more record-breaking free fishing workshops!”
In 2017, Learn 2 Fish hosted a fishing clinic, called Camp Fish, at Discovery World. During this event, Captain Greg presented his fishing basics workshop and invited participants to go fishing. The workshop was a hit and Discovery World asked Learn 2 Fish to come back for their Earth Day celebration in 2018 where they set their previous attendance record (over 1,000 youth and adults!). A hit once again, Discovery World invited Learn 2 Fish to their free-admission day this year!
With the free-admission day at Discovery World setting a Learn 2 Fish workshop record, Captain Greg said he can’t wait to come back again next year.
“We couldn’t do it without our volunteers,” Greg said. “We would also like to give a huge thanks to Discovery World for hosting the event and U.S. Forest Service for providing free admission for all attendees. And a big thank you to the volunteers from Discovery World and U.S. Fish and Wildlife for lending a helping hand during the event.”
