The next Cast Away Club event is from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 22 at the CCA Outdoor Education Center (located at the Kids’ Fishing Lagoon adjacent to Log Landing Road and the Oakridge Fire Station). Registration and name tag pickup is at 8:45 a.m.

Molly Canady, an Interpretive Ranger at the Skidaway Island State Park, will enlighten us on what visitors to the park have an opportunity to see of our native species. Live snakes, turtles, and fish are on display at Skidaway Island State Park, along with a replica skeleton of a giant sloth, which formerly inhabited the area. A birding station also allows guests to witness the variety of bird species that frequent the park throughout the year.  Molly will bring with her some live creatures for all to see up close. We hope you will join us to see and hear about what is right next door, as she takes us on a Walk in the Park.

The nature program is from 9 to 9:30 a.m. After the session kids and their parents will have the opportunity to fish together from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Rods, reels, and bait, will be provided by Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Volunteers, who will be available to help. Cast Away Club events always are free. Donations of $10 for a kid’s Cast Away Club hat are welcomed.

Attendance is limited, so please register as soon as possible at ccaskidaway.org
