Fishing rods donated to youth programs
Sierra Club and Trout Unlimited will work together to get kids outdoors and fishing. As part of the new partnership, Sierra Club will donate 700 fly fishing rods and reels to Trout Unlimited to use for their youth programs and outreach.
The new partnership is part of an effort that started in 2008 when the Sierra Club began working with the Federation of Fly Fishers to encourage children to fish. The groups donated 2,800 fishing rods to programs that so far have taken over 98,000 kids fishing.
The Club believes that outdoor experiences will help build the next generation of conservationists who will continue working to protect clean water and natural lands.
