Building Bridges in Madison County

Yesterday a great group of LOSTU volunteers turned out to help Madison County in their ongoing efforts to introduce local youth to the great outdoors.  The one week camp for teens featured a variety of fun, outdoor activities and ours was fly fishing.  As you can see by the attached pictures, it was a beautiful day and these first time fly anglers took to the water and to fishing with energy and success!  We wove in a conservation theme, looked under some rocks, picked up some litter and caught some fish. The kids then had an afternoon session on aquatic ecology with a faculty member from Mars Hill College.  Many thanks to all who came and helped nurture the next generation of stewards of our beautiful WNC trout streams.
