The following e-mail was received from the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife. Hooked on Fishing-Not on Drugs Training in April The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife will be hosting a 2-day Hooked on Fishing-Not on Drugs (HOFNOD) training on Thursday and Friday, April 3 & 4, at the North Hudson Park Environmental Academy in North Bergen. The training is for adult staff and volunteers of youth-centered community and/or faith-based organizations looking to offer an ongoing or year-round youth fishing, conservation and aquatic education program. HOFNOD is a great way to introduce youth to fishing, learning about their local water and other natural resources while supporting positive outdoor recreation activities and life skills. The program is flexible enough to be tailored to fit most organizations. Participants of this training will be responsible for delivering the program to youth from beginning to end. Organizations that participate in the program are eligible to receive additional professional development in conservation education and angling skills, financial and in-kind support for program materials and supplies including subsidized educational field trips. Supplemental training can be requested for content like fly tying, fly fishing and Discover SCUBA Diving. The registration deadline is Friday, March 28. There is a non-refundable registration fee of $30 per person which includes instruction, teaching materials and equipment, breakfast and snacks. Space is limited and is on a first come, first served basis.
