The National Park Service, Nevada Department of Wildlife, and Get Outdoors Nevada are proud to host field trips for schools to support the "Let's Go Fishing! at Lake Mead" program. 

Get Outdoors Nevada will cover the cost of a charter bus. Students will be taught basic fishing techniques and all about the amazing underwater wildlife at Lake Mead. Students will also earn their Jr. Angler badge!

All fishing equipment is provided. Fishing is catch and release only. Field trips are scheduled for November 2021.

Some Nevada Academic content standards that could be addressed during this experience are: 

1-LS1-2.  Read texts and use media to determine patterns in behavior of partners and offspring that help offspring survive.  (students can research the behavior of a chosen animal to determine patterns)

3-LS4-2.  Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing. 

MS-LS2-2. Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
