The Charlie Elliot Wildlife Center is hosting a free summer event before children go back to school.

On July 19, from 9 a.m. to noon, kids 16 and younger are able to fish at the Charlie Elliot Clubhouse Lake.

With an opportunity to catch a bass, bream or catfish, kids will be able to fish with the center's fisheries staff. Each child may take home up to two large mouth bass, 15 bream, five catfish and one hybrid white-striped bass.

Children 14 and younger are asked to be supervised by an adult. Bait and tackle is not provided. Staff asks no minnows be used as bait.

Starting in the fall of 2008, Charlie Elliot will be offering an internship for college students and graduates.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is allowing a paid internship lasting 36 weeks.

Interns will be given the chance to gain experience in leading on-site activities, outreach and residential programs.

Applicants are asked to be self-motivated and enthusiastic about wildlife and interested in teaching and working with animals.

A weekly stipend of $350 dollars will be given and free housing in the area is available.

Completed applications must be submitted by Aug. 1, 2008.
