The University of Findlay’s Reick Center for Habitat Studies will host a free fishing derby for the community during its open house on Saturday, June 4 from 9 a.m. to noon.
The Center, located at 17311 County Road 166, between Findlay and Arlington, has a two-acre pond where the derby will be held. Visitors are also welcome to explore the center’s 54 acres along two miles of trails that weave through woodlands, grasslands, along wetlands and past a variety of other habitats.
At the fishing derby, drawings will be held for a rod and reel, tackle and tackle box. Hot dogs, coffee and water will be available.
Also for the open house, the building will open at 8:30 a.m. for bird room viewing, coffee and conversation.
The Rieck Center is used by various UF science classes for observation, study, research and entertainment, but is open to the public all year. For more information on what the site has to offer, visit: https://www.findlay.edu/sciences/biology/the-rieck-center
