March 14, 2012 BFC Meeting Invitation
Join Boulder Flycasters on Wednesday, March 14th, 2012 at 6:30 PM at the REI Community Room for a chapter meeting featuring Aaron Kindle and Shane Cross from Trout Unlimited’s Sportsmen’s Conservation Project – a cadre of anglers and hunters who work with their fellow sportsmen to protect irreplaceable habitat.
In 2003, Trout Unlimited created its Sportsmen’s Conservation Project in order to better organize a sporting community that was growing restless with “politics as usual” when it came to managing – and protecting – irreplaceable fish and wildlife habitat on public lands in the West. Over the years, the voices of conservation-minded sportsmen had been co-opted by interests whose goals ran counter to those of the hunters and anglers across America who, even then, understood that good hunting and fishing starts with healthy, intact habitat – habitat that provides places to go to hunt and fish on land that belongs to every American.
You’ll be impressed with the work this group is doing in Colorado and throughout the West. Check out their website for more background information: http://www.tu.org/conservation/sportsmens-conservation-project
We will also have an update on what we expect to be BFC’s new conservation project on Upper South Boulder Creek.
Join us for a social hour after the meeting at the Baker St Pub just south of REI.
Note our new location for chapter meetings: REI in Boulder on 28th and Canyon in the Community Room in the center of the store.
We hope to see you on March 14th ….. Mark Riley, President
