  • Go Fishing

    Fishing can be a great way to spend some quiet time outside, or it can be a great way to spend some family time together. June 7-8 is Free Fishing Days in Kentucky and a license is not required in the state. Fishing on the Refuge is fun at the Environmental Education and Recreation Area or make plans to visit the National Fish Hatchery in Kentucky. Make sure if you fish on the refuge you get your free fishing permit here!

    Spending more time outside doesn't have to take major plans! There are simple ways such as eating outside, taking a walk after lunch or dinner, take time to stargaze, ride your bike, spend the evening watching fireflies, and the list goes on!
