Urban Kids Fishing Derby Highlights Burgeoning USFWS Partnership

Numerous kids and their families participated in the 10th annual Urban Kids Fishin
On Saturday, May 16, a burgeoning partnership between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Urban American Outdoors TV was celebrated at the tenth annual Urban Kids Fishing Derby in Kansas City, Kansas. This year Midwest Region staff from Neosho National Fish Hatchery not only participated in the day’s activities, but also stocked the event’s pond with trout to make the day possible. Joining Neosho participants David Hendrix and Roderick May was the Service’s Deputy Director, Jim Kurth. The Urban Kids Fishing Derby highlights how the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is committed to efforts that help engage urban youths in the outdoors.
