Did you know that it’s Earth Month? Here at FCEC we are excited about the many events to celebrate the Earth and of course fishing. Check out what cool events are going on this April, and join us for some celebration this month!
>> On April 6 join the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium for its monthly Native Garden Workday and Beach Cleanup to help clean up the coast of litter and marine debris.
>> Celebrate the Earth with the Aquarium of the Pacific April 13-14 as they host their annual Earth Day Celebration. Visit booths from various Earth-friendly organizations (including us!), get your hands on some fun crafts and enjoy many festivities at this family friendly event.
>> Have you been fishing with Uncle Larry? This is a FREE fishing event you don’t want to miss! On April 13 Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s Uncle Larry will be fishing on the Cabrillo pier. He will help you rig tackle, work on your fishing techniques, review fishing etiquette and more! Make sure to bring your fishing gear and head out to the Cabrillo Pier.
>> On Earth Day, April 20, take part in Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s Earth Day. Learn about our coastal environment and participate in fun contests and games! FCEC will be at this event too, so don’t be shy and come play our fishing game to see if you can identify what fish you catch!
>> Are your kids interested in learning more about fishing? The Daniel Hernandez Youth Foundation is providing kids 10-14 a memorable and safe day of learning and fishing on April 20. This is a great way to get your child hooked on fishing!
>> More about the Earth! April 20-21 Heal the Bay will be at the Santa Monica Pier for an Earth Day Festival that will be filled with fun activities for all ages!
