The Bureau of Reclamation announces its spring/summer 2014 Catch A Special Thrill (C.A.S.T.) for Kids/Let’s Move Outside event schedule.

The C.A.S.T. for Kids Program is designed to create an environment where special needs children can enjoy a day of boating and fishing. Each participant is teamed up with an expert angler who will help them learn and appreciate the sport of fishing.
