Boating and fishing are unmatched leisure activities that help make a true connection with family, friends and the natural environment. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division encourages people of all ages to reconnect with their families during National Fishing and Boating Week, June 1-9, 2013.
“Outdoor recreation strengthens the family as a unit and children as individuals,” says WRD Chief of Fisheries Management John Biagi. “National Fishing and Boating Week is an opportunity to remind all outdoor enthusiasts to teach their children and others the importance of natural resource conservation while introducing them to an exciting activity that could last a lifetime.”
National Fishing and Boating Week began in 1979 as National Fishing Week and was created to recognize the tradition of fishing, to broaden the spirit of togetherness and to share the values and knowledge of today’s anglers with tomorrow’s anglers.
