The DEP and City of Trenton kicked off summer by hosting a successful Fishing Derby for youth held at Stacy Pond in Trenton. An estimated 175 kids, parents, volunteers and staff participated in the derby, learned about fishing basics, watersheds and aquatic insects, and enjoyed a day in nature alongside the Delaware River.
The DEP and City of Trenton would like to thank the Youth Fishing Derby Supporters and Partners for their donations of supplies, trophies, expertise, equipment and time.
