Impressive Award to Trout in the Classroom

We received a national award for Outstanding Aquatic Education Program. Dan Nygren, the President of the American Fisheries Society, flew out from Kansas to present the award to us at May’s Fish & Game Commission meeting.  Justin Cutler, from the US Fish & Wildlife Service, pointed out that we “give students a reason to care about watershed health.” Chuck Bonham, the Director of Fish & Game, praised the efforts of teachers, staff and flyfishers saying, “We can do all the biological, legal and policy work imaginable, but we need to inspire and touch the soul of our children and their children.  Reaching students is central to our success.”
