    Letter from Organizer: 

    Dear WAM Members,

    I represent Youth Outdoor Activity Day which occurs on August 25th this year.This event has grown immensely over the 5 years we have had it. After reading about your organization, I think this might be a great way for you to interact with women who want to get into fishing but lack the opportunities and abilities to know how to do it. 

    Some key points about our event:

    • The event is completely free in every way.  
    • 2018 we had 2,212 kids (over 3,500 total) attend the event that featured over 45 different hands-on activities.  
    • We are trying to get more families involved (particularly moms!) and have a couple of different things to encourage adult participation with their kids.  
    • Our YouTube Video
    • Attached is a presentation about the event

      Dear Wam Members,

      Four years ago I started a wilderness program with my kindergarten class called, “Wilderness Wednesdays.” For the entire day on Wednesdays I take two classrooms of students outside in our school forest/creek area and teach them science, math, and language arts standards along with nature education.  

      I’ve been able to connect with a lot of great organizations to bring experts out to the forest with us: MN Tracking Club, our local Watershed District, MN Tracker’s Association, Keystone Elk Country Alliance to name a few.  One of the big areas that I’m missing is fishing.  As an avid angler – I want these kids involved in fishing.

      My hope is that some of you would consider coming to our school to work with the children and help me get them interested in fishing by teaching them what they need to know.  

      Thank you,

      Jen Heyer

      This will be a basic intro class and is designed for the new boater or someone that wants to buy a boat but needs more education to feel comfortable. 

      The class will focus on boating education, on water training, backing a trailer up, loading and unloading your boat, and boat basics.

      Stations include, boating 101, intro to your boat, launching/loading, backing up the trailer, intro to the boat launch, and driving on the lake.

      Lunch will be from Subway and there will be snacks (hence the small fee).

      We need a minimum of 2 volunteers to provide a fun activity for children teaching them about angling and to share information with parents about your organization and how to encourage their children to get out and enjoy the great outdoors by angling.


      The purpose of our event is to educate families about the great outdoors and their families place in it. We have over 30 event partners every year join us to encourage learning through activity and showing how easy it is to “Get Out and Grow” 

      Every year we have over 1000 children and families attend our completely free event to learn about the great outdoors and their families place in it. We encourage learning thought activity and have a variety of partners join us to provide fun activities that encourage children and their families getting out and growing in the great outdoors.

      We are hoping Women Anglers of MN would be interested in coming out and participating in our event. We have had other for profit fishing organizations come out in the past and are making an effort to include organizations that align more closely with our own mission and think you all may be a great fit. Participating in the event is free  and you are able to share information with guests about your organization.

      We only ask that you provide a fun interactive activity for children which has included in the past bringing out a boat that children can touch, see and feel, or short casting lessons, or could include making your own lure or fishing pole etc. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you think this may be something that your organization is interested in.

      We look forward to the possibility of you joining us.
