John C. Burrus School of Fish

School of Fish is a half-day clinic for children ages 8 through 15.  Held in June at LPBF's New Canal Lighthouse and the adjacent New Orleans lakefront seawall, children are taught knot tying and tackle, fish ID, casting, fishing with rods and reels, and boating safety by LPBF educators and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries volunteers. We provide the fishing poles, life jackets, and lunch.  Students receive a Certificate of Participation and LPBF's School of Fish t-shirt.

The 2018 School of Fish will be held on Tuesday, June 12 and Wednesday, June 13 from 8 a.m. until noon. Children attend on one  of the two days.  Subscribe to our monthly e-newsletter, Basin Bulletin, for updates.

Registration will open on Monday, May 21!
