Family Frog Gigging Event June 17, 2016


The popular annual Goose Pond FWA family frog gigging event will take place this year on Friday evening June 17, 2016. Advance pre-registration is required. Space is limited. Newcomers and adults and youth who have not done this event before are especially welcome. This is a great chance to get youth participants out experiencing wetlands at night, and with adult supervision and guiding. Friends of Goose Pond and funds from the Wabash Valley Community Foundation join the DNR in supporting the event. Refreshments and gigging equipment provided.

Adult family members or adult chaperones who come along with the youth attendees will need a valid hunting or fishing license if they participate in the gigging but not if they are just are coming along to observe and chaperone. The DNR supplies experienced guides and will supply gigs to participants to take home. See the flier info below. Pass this notice along or share to anyone you think might be interested. To register and for more information call the Goose Pond FWA office at the number on the DNR announcement (812) 659-9901.
