May 29, 2018 by Don Manning
Trout in the Classroom is a conservation-oriented education program designed for elementary to high school students. This popular program is growing successfully across Pennsylvania schools because of the interdisciplinary nature of the program and the high-level of engagement educators are seeing from kids during the program. One educator at Nottingham Elementary in the Oxford Area School District has embraced this program and made the most of it for his fourth-grade classroom.
The Great American Outdoor Show is only days away! It is one of the biggest outdoor shows anywhere. It features over 1,100 exhibitors across 650,000 square feet at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg. Among the many events, competitions, seminars and vendors, there are many must do activities for kids to check out.
If you are still fishing for bass on the Susquehanna River or other Pennsylvania Fishing Hotspots out of that 20-year old aluminum river jet rig like many anglers, it may be time to update your fishing rig. Boy are you in for a surprise. A new aluminum river bass boat with a jet motor will easily set you back $20,000! Surprised? Well that is not even for a top of the line fishing boat. More elaborate fishing boats for bass are made like tanks, many advertise to bounce off rocks for those fishing for bass in rivers across the state. These high-end bass fishing boats will set you back in the range of $30-40 thousand dollars depending on brand and dealer.
