Project Description

Within the Bay Area region, we have launched an Outreach and Education Program in order to educate students, partners, fly clubs, and donors about about the benefits of healthy watersheds and the condition of native salmonids. By leveraging existing partnerships and building new ones we are developing local demonstration projects to augment the program. Our California Academy of Sciences partnership has resulted in the creation of a steelhead exhibit, and is educating their middle school Teen Advocates for Science participants about the salmon life-cycle, entomology, and fly casting. Working with the Walker Creek Ranch Outreach and Education program, we are training naturalists in stream ecology to engage students, and providing equipment and resources. Our partnership with Bay Area Youth Fly Fishers is educating and inspiring our next generation of angler conservationists.
