The US Fish & Wildlife Service is currently performing an Environmental Assessment of Arizona’s fish stocking program that is expected to potentially affect the popular Take a Kid Fishing program at La Paz County Park each year.
Walter Shontz is urging residents and visitors who have enjoyed Take a Kid Fishing to write Brie Darr, USFW, PO Box 1306, Albuquerque, NM 87103 and explain how important the program is in Parker, AZ each February. A quick response, Shontz says, will make all the difference in continuing the program.
Last year’s 32nd annual event had 750 youth attend over two days.
Shontz can be reached at (928) 669-5220. The Environmental Assessment is available here.
