Oklahoma City Foundation Launches New Program to Teach Kids How To Fish


The Paul George Foundation gave $4,200 to the Oklahoma Fishing in the Schools Program during February’s regular meeting of the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The gift will be used to support travel expenses for fourth-graders in 13 Oklahoma City urban schools that are now participating in the youth fishing program.

In November, the foundation held a kickoff event on the Oklahoma River.

 “We have the most difficult time reaching those inner city schools and, so, Paul George reaching out to us looking for this partnership opportunity is a perfect opportunity,” J.D. Strong, with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, told News 4 in November.
