Three national boating, fishing and conservation organizations that serve kids and families are the recipients of new education grants from the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation.
The organizations — the Future Fisherman Foundation, the International Game Fish Association and the National Recreation and Park Association — were awarded the grants as part of RBFF's ongoing boating and fishing educational outreach and youth engagement efforts.
“The three grantees are among the most dedicated organizations in the U.S. to the mission of inspiring young people to get outdoors and conserve our natural resources,” RBFF Education Task Force chairman Lynne Borden said in a statement. “The Education Task Force knows that each organization will make full use of the grants as they develop opportunities to educate and engage with a whole new generation of outdoor enthusiasts who honor the angling and boating tradition.”
Since 2007, RBFF's youth initiatives have engaged 1.51 million young people, according to the foundation.
