25 Jul American Memorial Park’s Fish and Feathers Summer Program
First Session of the Month of June!
The American Memorial Park located in the island of Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Fish and Feathers’ interns host their very first F&F Summer Program for ages 11-18 years old, up to 25 participants for each session.
Fish and Feathers Inters, Jether Yobech and Laurina Sebaklim worked together to put an educational summer program that gives the whole learning and hands on experience of bird watching and Rod & Reel fishing. The smiles on these young adults and children was a very heartwarming feeling for our Laurina and Jether. With all the positive feedbacks, the interns felt success out of their hands!
The picture shown is their last day of the summer program which ended with a nice award ceremony, in celebration of our campers completed their first ever, Fish and Feathers Summer Program. With completing the program, this grants them the opportunity to access American Memorial Parks Equipment Library which they will be able to check out birding and fishing gears/equipments.
