Sept. 13 – Kid’s Fishing Day at Founders Pier in Farmington Hills

Farmington Hills, MI -Celebrate National Grandparents’ Day on Sunday, September 13 with fishing fun at the Founders Fishing Pier located at Founders Sports Park at 35500 W. Eight Mile Road in Farmington Hills.

The Farmington Hills Nature Center is hosting this special event that offers children ages 5 to 18, along with grandparents, parents, family, and friends the opportunity to share the fun of catch and release fishing in the pond at Founders Park.

Each child will be provided with a fishing rod and reel, bait, and instructions.  The program takes place entirely outdoors, so please dress for the weather and bring a water bottle, sunglasses, and your favorite hat to protect you from the sun.  There will be plenty of room to spread out and distance from other families.

Due to COVID-19, temperature checks and health screening questions will be required upon arrival.  Participants need to wear a mask and/or stay six feet apart.  Participants will be emailed prior to the program if there are any updates regarding precautions.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.  The cost is $5 per child.  There are three separate sessions running from 9 – 10 a.m.; 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.; and 12 to 1 p.m.  Pre-registration for each child is required either in person at the Costick Center at 28600 Eleven Mile Road or online at http://recreg.fhgov.com.
