Forest Ecology Preserve Hosts Members Fish ‘n’ Fun, Saturday, June 21st

In appreciation of their support, the Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve & Nature Center recently invited members to gather at the turtle pond for fishing, fun, and fellowship.  Members of all ages enjoyed acoustical music by Mel O’ Joe, lunch courtesy of Earth Fare, and cookies and fruit from Sam’s Club and Kroger. Prize donations from Gander Mountain and Moe’s Original Bar B Que went to anglers Harrison Geiger, who landed the Biggest Fish with a 12″ large mouth bass and Reagen Gamble who snagged the Smallest Catch of the day with a 4″ brim. Giveaways also went out to the Oldest and Youngest Anglers, and the angler who netted the most Unusual Fish.

The Forest Ecology Preserve & Nature Center extends its gratitude to all who participated, volunteered, and supported the membership program. Jennifer Lolley, outreach administrator, states, “Our members’ support is vital to the preserve; to have this opportunity to do something special for them is very exciting.”

The Forest Ecology Preserve is an outreach program of the Auburn University School of Forestry & Wildlife Sciences and is located at 2222 N. College Street, Auburn; just north of the AU Fisheries Complex. For more information about member benefits and upcoming events visit auburn.edu/preserve, email preserve@auburn.edu, or phone outreach administrator, Jennifer Lolley at 334-707-6512, or membership and marketing coordinator, Jamie Anderson at 334-703-6960.
