Interested in becoming a TAKF volunteer?
We are currently seeking volunteers to help with our kids fishing programs. Program activities are fun and easy - you do not need to have any special knowledge of fishing in order to volunteer with us. We have some volunteers who are avid anglers and others who prefer to help the kids with activities such as knot tying or fish printing. There is something for everyone who would like to get outdoors and join other volunteers in a great program for kids.
