On June 29, 2010, the Arlington Texas Field Office held its 18th annual fishing event for local YMCA Summer Camp children at Brockdale Park near Allen, Texas.  Twenty-five volunteers from various federal and state agencies and outdoor advocate groups offered presentations to approximately 115 children on subjects ranging from boating/water safety, fish biology, conservation, aquatic ecology, and fishing techniques.  The Blackland Prairie Raptor Center also handled and discussed several live birds of prey.  As always, the fishing was the most exciting part of the day for the children and many were able to land a fish and have their picture taken.
