Kids Invited to Fish with IDNR at the DuQuoin State Fair

Illinois Department of Natural Resources

Children will have an opportunity to fish for bluegill and learn how to cast a line at Conservation Village with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources each day of the Du Quoin State Fair. Illinois Conservation Police and wildlife biologists will be on hand to discuss conservation regulations and wildlife management. Fairgoers can pick up copies of the new IDNR hunting and trapping guide and the latest issue of the Illinois state parks guide.

Events take place in Conservation Village, located near the Exposition Building, and will be open 4-8 p.m. on weeknights and noon to 8 p.m. on weekends. The fair continues through Labor Day, September 4th.
