The first event of the series is called “Fish Are Jumping at Harvest Square Preserve” and takes place on Tuesday, June 3rd at 5:30 p.m. It is free, and the purpose is to: “try your hand at a simple way to catch fish” by either using supplied cane poles or your own.

This event takes place at the Harvest Square Preserve, which “features two ponds (16.5 acres) and 2.3 miles of flat trails for hiking, biking, and running.” There are two "ponds" at Harvest Square that are part of the Tennessee River Watershed.
