Troop 186 and DEEP Intro to Fishing

Posted on Apr 7 2021 - 11:11pm

Greetings T186 -

DEEP just released it’s FREE introduction to fishing and fishing field trips. If interested in learning more about fishing and participating in a guided, hands on clinic then this is a perfect family opportunity. 
You need to first sign-up for an Introduction to Fishing Course zoom class and then register to attend one of the free fishing expeditions. There is an upcoming trip at Valley Falls on May 5th, it’d be great to see other scouts and their families there with us. 
Please note, anglers 16 years and older need to separately purchase a CT fishing license. All of this can be done on the DEEP website: 
Announcement from DEEP:
Come Fish with DEEP Fisheries!
The DEEP Fisheries Division - Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (CARE) program is here to help you get fishing by offering Introduction to Fishing ZOOM classes and fishing field trips!

It's perfect hiking weather

Posted on Apr 1 2021 - 12:16am

This Saturday will be perfect hiking weather.  The PLC decided a short Saturday morning hike would be nice.

Join us at 10 AM at Valley Falls Park in Vernon, just 15 minutes away.   From the parking lot we'll head north and explore the Belding Wildlife Management Area.   We'll be out there for a couple of hours covering somewhere between 2.5 and 4 miles and back in time for lunch.

An email with more details to follow.
