North Port Youth Learn Responsible Fishing Practices

On Saturday, June 14th, the Stow It-Don’t Throw It Project teamed up with the City of North Port’s annual Kids Fishing Clinic and Tournament to help raise awareness about the importance of fishing line recycling and marine debris prevention. Young people attending this event had the opportunity to participate in a variety of stations to learn responsible fishing techniques and ways to protect marine and aquatic environments.  During the event, students visited our station to learn about fishing line recycling, and assemble their own personal-sized fishing line recycling bins. Over 160 recycling bins were assembled by the youth attending. They also received fishing poles and gear for their participation. A special thanks to the City of North Port for allowing us to be part of this special event!
