  • Introduction:
    The popular program is the first Saturday of each month from 10-noon, with the exception of April. The program is free with regular admission.

All topics are family friendly and hands-on. Bring the family for a fun, educational morning; then stay to picnic, hike, fish or just relax…what a great way to spend a morning!

Upper Texas Coast residents are lucky when it comes to fishing since it’s basically a year-round activity. No matter the season, it’s always fun to head to a favorite spot and drop a line.  For beginners or old hands who want to become better prepared, Baytown Nature Center’s monthly Nurture Nature Series has the perfect solution on Saturday, March 4 when Naturalist Crissy Butcher shares Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Angler Education. The 2-hour program from 10 am - noon is free with admission to the nature center, located at 6213 Bayway Drive. Admission for adults and children over 13 is $4 and $1 for seniors and children 5-12.

The program focuses on several points of angler education including fish ID, basic knots and tackle, fish handling, safety, ethics and regulations. Participants do not need to bring any gear. For demonstration purposes the nature center furnishes all materials, including fishing rods and bait. This is an excellent introduction to a lifetime hobby/sport for all ages.

Following the instruction period visitors who have brought their own equipment may stay and practice their newly-found skills in the several fishing spots at the nature center. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it. There’s something for the whole family.
