[DNR] “Fishy” evening reception for families on May 24 at Paynetown SRA
Start Date: 5/13/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/13/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Monroe Lake’s Interpretive Services will kick off summer with a family-focused evening reception on Friday, May 24, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The “Fish, Food and Friends” reception will be at the activity center in Paynetown State Recreation Area, 4850 S. State Road 446.

Visitors can munch on fish-themed treats, and see which Monroe Lake fish made the staff’s Top Five list.

“Schools” of fish painted by students at eight Monroe County elementary schools will be featured on the walls. Kids also can enjoy “fishy” games, activities and crafts.

Staff will have information on the upcoming Free Fishing Weekend event at Paynetown SRA.

Visitors also can learn about a new program launching Memorial Day Weekend that will offer free rental of fishing equipment to Paynetown visitors.

This is the first time in two years that the activity center will be open the entire summer season. A record-setting flood in May 2011 destroyed most of the building contents. The renovation has just been completed.

For more information, call (812) 837-9967.

The standard entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle or $7 per out-of-state vehicle applies. Annual Entrance Passes are also available for purchase.

Monroe Lake is at 4850 South State Road 446, Bloomington, 47401.
