Fishing's Future recognized as #1 Aquatic Education Program in America
Recently, Fishing's Future was awarded the 2016 Roland Sigurdson Outstanding Aquatic Education Program Award naming Fishing's Future as the #1 Aquatic Education Program in America by the Aquatic Resources Education Association (AREA). Award ceremonies took place on October 26, 2016 at the U. S. Fish & Wildlife National Training and Conference Center just outside of Washington DC.
Competition was strong as many other programs throughout our nation were in the competition, including the Boy Scouts of America. Fishing’s Future Founder and President, Shane Wilson, graciously accepted the honor stating, “This award goes out to all volunteers and supporters who have taken part in making Fishing’s Future what it is today. There are hundreds of Fishing’s Future volunteers who give freely of their time to share the joys and knowledge of fishing within their communities and we could not do it without them.”
