Make your own fishing pole out of simple natural materials during Saturday at The Sawmill. We’ll test out your new fishing pole in the river and use nets to search for macroinvertebrates (aka big water bugs!) that live at the bottom.

During Saturdays at The Sawmill, the Hawes Family Learning Center will be open to the public from 10am-1pm, with the Make Your Own Fishing Pole family program starting at 11am.
