Youth Outdoors

Fishing, hunting events sponsored by Judge Grendell

Popular youth fishing and hunting experiences return to Geauga Park District this summer and fall thanks to the sponsorship of Geauga County Probate & Juvenile Court Judge Timothy Grendell. Check out this article from last year’s event.

Two Family Fishing Expo events are scheduled for families with kids ages 8-14:

  • Saturday, September 13, at Swine Creek Reservation in Middlefield Township and
  • Sunday, September 14, at Big Creek Park in Chardon Township

Both are from 9 a.m. to noon, and registration is required at the website or 440-286-9516.

Fishing expo families will enjoy instruction in the basics of fishing equipment, knot tying and fish identification, followed by a morning of fishing with the help of experienced anglers. Equipment will be provided or bring your own.

Additionally, young people selected during a recent lottery will also take part in Youth Hunting on Saturday and Sunday, November 22 and 23, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at The Rookery.

Applicants had to possess a valid youth hunting license and youth deer permit, have completed the ODNR Division of Wildlife’s Hunter Safety course, and be accompanied by a non-hunting adult. All ODNR rules and regulations apply.

“Geauga County has a rich tradition of fishing and hunting,” said the judge. “It is important that we pass this legacy on to the future generations. I appreciate Geauga Park District’s natural resources and want future generations to enjoy these great resources.”

Prizes will be offered by Judge Grendell and other event sponsors.

Geauga Park District is online, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
