BCC and Berkshire Natural Resource Council Family Fishing Fest.\\ Free to BCC affiliated

BCC has teamed up with Berkshire Natural Resource Council for a Family Fishing Festival, being offered FREE to BCC students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their guests this Saturday, 9/13, from 10am-2pm!

Everyone will meet at the Burbank Park Boat Launch area at Onota Lake in Pittsfield, and the instructor from Mass Wildlife will have fishing equipment if needed. This event is for all ages, and for beginners to advanced, lessons will be offered to people who would like them…


Just a heads-up that the YMCA has a 5K event there the same day with their signage around, but we’ll be in a slightly different location.

Please sign up by calling the number below, replying to this email, or stopping by the Paterson front desk.

Take advantage of this fun day!

See you there,
