‘Cops and Bobbers’ 

As summer winds down and cooler temperatures are just around the corner, join members from New Brighton Public Safety and Parks and Recreation in getting outdoors for some family fun and a community fishing clinic on Tuesday, Aug. 29 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the fishing pier at Long Lake Regional Park, located on Beach Road in New Brighton. 

This free event is open to all, and families will learn how to fish, be safe near the water, get their hands dirty handling bait, and have the opportunity to reel in the a catch — though it’s catch-and-release only. Participants will also gain knowledge through hands-on science learning educational activities. For more information, visit www.newbrightonmn.gov or call 651-638- 2124.
