Are you an avid fisher? Have you ever wanted to try fishing, but never got the chance to do so? Whatever your answer, you should think about attending one of the great fishing festivals that MassWildlife Angler Education Program is hosting around the state this weekend. Come to cast a line, learn about native Massachusetts fishes and familiarize yourself in the important areas of fishing safety, ethics, and equipment. Seasoned fishers are requested to bring their own equipment, but equipment and tackle will be provided for first timers. Events will be held on Saturday in Westborough on the shores of Sandra Pond and in Charlton at Snows Pond and on Sunday the fishing festival will take place in Brookline.

A series of Sunday afternoon Nature Walks and Stories will start this week in South Boston. Department of Conservation and Recreation rangers invite you and your family to a fun filled afternoon of crafts and story readings in Ventura Park!

As always, check out the Great Outdoors interactive calendar for a complete listing of outdoor events in Massachusetts. Bookmark the MassWildlife events page too, for wildlife related talks, events, hikes and more!
