Kids pet live fish at Landmark Park's summer program

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) — During the school year, kids learn about math, science, English and history. Once summertime hits, it is an opportunity for kids to learn about the outdoors.

Landmark Park holds special one hour education programs during the summer called "Animal Adventures." It's a unique opportunity for kids to learn about our natural world.

The group of kids is reeling in all sorts of fun facts while they're out of school.

District 4 fish management botanist Rob Andress showed them some animals they would see if they went fishing in a creek or river in the area, such as catfish, bluegill and even a turtle.

"They’re going to remember touching those fish, so as they walk away from here, they're going to enjoy that memory,” said Andress. “If we can get them excited about the outdoors, we're ahead of the game."

On June 27th, the park will show an educational movie on rocks and minerals. You can visit their website for more information at
