Join environmental educator, Fran Martino and meet her trusty companion dog, Loki, to get the fish facts on healthy nutrition. Stop by to play the “Go Fish Game” – an activity using laminated pictures of fish, identification keys, and maps to determine if the fish can be eaten, or must it be thrown back. By being smart and choosing wisely, the whole family can eat up to four meals per month of fish they catch in the public access waters of New York State. Stop by to find where those waters are, and how the species and size of the fish are important when choosing which fish to eat.
