Chrissy Plant explains how to catch fish as part of the “Something Fishy” program held at The Runge Public Library.
A library participant touches a fish at The Runge Public Library during an educational fishing program held this summer.
This week there was “Something Fishy” at the Runge Public Library. Chrissy Plant presented a program all about fish and how to catch 'em to a full house of eager kids and parents. They talked about what fish need to live, how to make your own fishing pole, and why there are rules for what kind of or how many fish you can catch. They got to draw their own fish (in its fishy habitat), and decorate a cookie with blue icing water, white sprinkle bubbles, and Swedish fish. They also received a handy guide to identify various fresh and saltwater fish.
That's going to be hard to top, but we're going to try. On Wednesday, July 10 at 3 p.m. we're going to “Dig In to Nature” with Park Ranger Rex Niemeyer from the Goliad State Park and Historic Site. He's going to teach us about identifying animals using tracks and scats and we'll even do a little outside investigation to see if we can identify which animals are coming out to play in our neighborhood when we humans aren't around. Join us, won't you?
