Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser has announced KD Park’s annual ice fishing derby will occur on January 21, 2017 from 7 am – 11 am at KD Park, 8530 352nd Ave, Burlington, WI 53105.
The 4-H Youth Ice Fishing Derby is hosted by the Kenosha County Parks in cooperation with County Executive Jim Kreuser, the Kenosha County University of Wisconsin Extension 4-H, and the Pringle Nature Center. This annual event gives children the opportunity to ice fish with experienced adults as well as join in special activities including snow shoeing, cross country skiing, and self-guided hikes through four miles of trails within KD Park. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing poles and bait since limited supplies will be provided by the Parks Division. Prizes will be distributed to participants based on awards for select categories. Participants and spectators are also encouraged to drop off their Christmas trees during the event as part of an effort to add fish habitat to the lake.
The 4-H is a youth organization that belongs to the members, their families and other interested adults who serve as volunteer leaders. In 4-H, young people share, grow, and learn together from various projects, events, and activities in informal situations under the guidance of their families and other leaders. 4-H is open to all youth from kindergarten through age 19.
Kenosha County’s KD Park encompasses 234 acres with a newly developed parkway, parking lots, storm water management features and increased accessibility to its 39-acre lake.
