Our chapter has always recognized the importance of educating the public on cold, clean water and its significance in supporting a healthy population of aquatic life. Fishing, and more significantly fly fishing, is often employed as the link which opens the door to creating an understanding of aquatic ecology and the need to preserve, protect and restore our coldwater resources.

The following pages highlight some of the educational resources we employ to educate a variety of audiences, from the very young to those in their senior years. The chapter is also engaged in other educational programs such as fly-tying classes and fishing events specifically tailored to women and youth.
