Fly Fishing for Beginners: Trout, Streams, and Fly Tying Basics; 1:30 –3:00 PM

Participants will learn to match the hatch and practice a few basic fly tying techniques. This program is designed to take some of the mystery out of fly fishing, but not lose the mystique. Suitable for 18 years and up. All equipment is provided. Free

Well Water Basics: Protect Your Drinking Water; 7:00 PM

Registration required.

“If it looks good, tastes good, and doesn’t stink, my well water must be ok, right?” 50% of the time this assumption is wrong. Most of us take for granted the quality of our drinking water. It’s Groundwater Awareness Week, so come out for an evening with hydrologist Brian Oram to discuss your drinking water, ground water resources, and some real potential hazards in your community. This program is part of the Keystone Clean Water Team outreach program. Learn more at: http://www.pacleanwater.orgFree.
