GUILDERLAND — Fishing can be relaxing and rewarding, and the catch of the day yields solid nutrition. However, some fish from the Hudson River may contain harmful chemicals. On Thursday, April 15, at 6:30 p.m., older teens and adults can learn about safe places to fish in the Capital Region, plus tasty food prep ideas. This Zoom event will be conducted by Karen Roberts Mort from Cornell Cooperative Extension. Attendees will receive a booklet about wild-caught fish and proper cleaning and filleting techniques, plus recipe ideas. We’ll also provide tackle baggies and fishing guides for registrants to pick up curbside. Please register on the Events tab of our website.
