Take me fishing!

Fishing-with-the-kids-04.jpgThree Rivers' Outdoor Recreation School has received a Take Me Fishing grant for the third straight year! The award by the national Recreation Boating and Fishing Foundation (RBFF) supports local park and recreation agencies to reconnect kids with nature and to engage kids ages 6 to 15 in recreational boating and fishing. 

Our Outdoor Recreation School works with more than 5,000 participants annually in fishing, boating and aquatic education programs, and this grant will help us expand summer camp opportunities, partner with other organizations to provide free fishing and boating programs, and implement new fishing programs for women, families and diverse populations that traditionally have not had the opportunity to fish.
