IGFA and the National Park Service (NPS) Partner on Youth Education

The IGFA and the National Park Service (NPS) have recently partnered on an exciting new initiative to teach kids to fish at National Parks throughout the southeastern United States.

Over the next year, the IGFA will implement its Passports to Fishing program - a hands-on introduction to recreational fishing and ethical angling practices - at five parks across the southeastern United States for the National Park Service’s Junior Ranger Anglers. In its first year, the program anticipates reaching at least 6,000 Junior Rangers and their families; reconnecting kids with the great outdoors and providing hands-on clinics on ethical angling practices.

This project was made possible in part by a grant from the National Park Foundation. To learn more about this program, please contact IGFA Youth Education Manager Lisa Morse at [email protected]
