Join the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC), Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), and 4-H, for a fun-filled afternoon of FREE events celebrating National Hunting and Fishing (NHF) Day at Bald Eagle State Park!

The event will be held at Pavilions #3 and #4 on Sunday, September 24, 2023, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
*No fishing or hunting license is needed to participate in the event.

The National Hunting and Fishing Day program will provide opportunities for families to participate in fishing activities like on-water fishing with the PFBC staff, including Waterway Conservation Officers (WCO).

WCOs will not only be assisting with fishing and other instruction during the program, but will also be available during the day to answer regulation, safety, or fishing questions.

Families will also be introduced to conservation by building fish habitat structures for the lake with PFBC’s Division of Lake Habitat staff.

Participants will also be able to test their shooting skills with an archery course offered by the 4-H Youth Development Program. All equipment will be provided for the event!

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will be providing a presentation and display all about Pennsylvania mammals.

About National Hunting and Fishing Day:
NHF Day recognizes generations of sportsmen and women for their contributions to the conservation of our nation’s rich sporting heritage and natural resources. One of the main goals of National Hunting and Fishing Day is to recruit new hunters and anglers by encouraging participation in recreational hunting and fishing, as well as increasing public awareness of the connection between hunting, angling, and environmental conservation.
