FLW Outdoors announced that the newly formed FLW Outdoors Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization designed to connect America's youth to natural resources and promote education, conservation and an active lifestyle, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service signed a memorandum of understanding.

The purpose is to establish a general framework for cooperation between the foundation and the federal agency to:

• Advance the corporate and public appreciation of fish and wildlife and the challenges they face in our ever-changing world.

• Identify the needs and assistance required to protect and ensure the survival of fish and wildlife and their habitat.

• Explore strategies and promote efforts to connect people, and especially youth, with nature.

• Develop, encourage and promote effective working relationships among agencies, nongovernmental organizations and corporations working to protect and restore fish and wildlife and their habitats.

• Support the organizational goals of both parties.

“We are proud to be partnering with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service,” FLW Outdoors president of operations Kathy Fennel said in a statement. “To join forces with this agency in educating future generations of fishing enthusiasts is a testament to FLW Outdoors’ legacy as a leader in both professional and recreational fishing.”

The foundation functions nationwide, engaging thousands of volunteers at nearly 200 fishing tournaments and fishing expos.
