Hi Al,

I got a quickie for ya. Whats the deal with that Sport Fishing Education Center located in Babylon? Is it mostly for youngsters? Or is there something there for everyone?

Someone was telling me that they were looking for voulonteers? Are they? If so for what?

Can you shed some light? Sorry, I guess it may not be a quickie after all!

Thanks again for EVERYTHING,

Sportfish ed center ....

The center is really for everyone, experienced angler or beginner. We currently have a display of antique spinning tackle in our "museum."

The aquaculture facility contains striped bass, fluke, flounder, 'tog, sea bass, etc. as well as many other interesting creatures.

Cornell Co-op is running a day camp this summer and we also have other events planned.

Several seminars will be held ranging from lure making to shark & tuna fishing.

Volunteers ARE NEEDED to help with all aspects of the center. If you would like to help out, contact me by email or phone.

Help us bring this educational facility to the levels that we envision it!!!!
