Volunteer for Discover Nature Fishing

Volunteer to Teach Kids and Families to Fish

Share your passion for fishing with others!

We need experienced angler volunteers across Missouri to help kids and families learn to fish through our free Discover Nature — Fishing Program. By volunteering, you can help beginners gain the skills and confidence to go fishing on their own.

The program lasts from April through October.

Get Training and Choose Your Level of Involvement

We offer volunteer training in small class sizes, so you can focus on teaching and coaching.

You can specialize in a single lesson , or you can master and teach all four lessons. Visit the Discover Nature — Fishing Program page to learn more about these lessons.
