Third Annual “Take A Child Fishing Day” At Kensico Reservoir on September 18

Commissioner Christopher O. Ward of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced today that the DEP is joining with the Kensico Environmental Enhancement Program (KEEP) to sponsor the 3rd annual “Take a Child Fishing Day” at Louden Cove at the Kensico Reservoir in Westchester.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 18 from 10 AM to 1 PM. Bait (generously donated by Bob’s Sport & Tackle) will be provided. Participants will have to supply their own rod and reel. Reservations are also required to be made by September 17. Call DEP at (914) 773-4553 for reservations.

“This is a great opportunity for parents and children to spend a day of fun together at one of our watershed’s most beautiful recreational sites, and at the same time learn more about the Kensico Reservoir,” said Commissioner Ward. “The 2003 Take a Child Fishing Day was a great success, and I want to thank KEEP for their co-sponsorship as well as Bob’s for donating the bait. I’m sure everyone will have a great time,” said the Commissioner.
