Sarasota County 4-H Camp Participants Assemble Fishing Line Recycling Bins

On June 7-11, over 80 4-H members from Sarasota County spent a week at Cloverleaf 4-H Center in Lake Placid, FL for 4-H Summer Camp. During the week these participants took part in a variety of classes and activities ranging from archery and canoeing to crafts and fishing. As part of their nature classes for the week, youth learned about the "Stow It-Don't Throw It" project and the importance of recycling used fishing line. They then worked throughout the day to assemble approximately 200 personal-sized fishing line recycling bins to be distributed to anglers at a varitey of different events and locations. A special thanks to the Sarasota County 4-H members, Summer Camp Staff, and Sarasota County 4-H Staff for their help with this project!
