Weather Service Casts Its Line to Educate Children

The Annual Catfish Rodeo was held at Shelby Park, in
East Nashville, on June 8, 2013. This event provides
an opportunity for up to 600 kids to fish free at Lake Sevier, inside the park, and to learn about water resources.

It is sponsored by the Cumberland River Compact and
creates a fun educational enviornment, often including folks from Metro Water Service, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA), the National Weather Service, and others. All these agencies participated in a scavenger hunt where children learned about all sorts of things dealing with water, wildlife and river systems. Educational booth topics included fishing, boating and water education activities.

Each time a child participated in an educational opportunity at one of the established booths, they received a unique stamp on their Cumberland River Watershed Map. One such map, held by an industrious rodeo participant, is shown below:



Following is a picture showing National Weather Service Hydrologist James LaRosa demonstrating the flood plain model to several rodeo participants:
