Fishing and learning

The annual Take a Kid Fishing event was at Thompson Park June 9, held in conjunction with the Thompson Lake Restoration Celebration. The West St. Paul Police Department helped with fishing off the pier, where there were nibbles and catches. Dodge Nature Center brought out live turtles and attendees had a chance to see the restored lake and wetland. As a celebration of the finished project, those in attendance got to throw seed balls onto the newly restored shoreline. The balls were filled with native seeds and will help finish the restoration project.
