Enjoy Fun, Family And Fishing At The Salato Wildlife Education Center Sept. 4
FRANKFORT, Ky. – School is back in session. Fall is just around the corner. It’s the time of year when the nights finally begin to cool and the fish start biting well again. If you didn’t get the chance to take a kid fishing this summer, now is the time to give it a try.
Join the staff of the Salato Wildlife Education Center for a guided fishing adventure at the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife lakes in Frankfort from 10 a.m. – noon, Saturday, Sept. 4. We provide the fishing rods, bait and all the help that you and your family need. What a better way to end the summer than by helping a kid catch their first fish! Although there is no fee for this program, space is limited. Registration is required.
The Salato Center has a variety of native animals for the public to see, including a black bear, an eagle, bobcats, elk, deer, bison, snakes and fish. The center has numerous indoor exhibits and miles of hiking trails open to the public. Fishing is available at two lakes. While some programs may require a registration fee, general admission to the Salato Center is free.
