Mission: To promote stewardship and fishing by connecting pond owners with kids from local school systems or organizations.
The Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) partners with pond owners, organizations, and schools to provide fishing opportunities for Alabama's youth. The program's goal is to develop a mentoring relationship between the pond owner and the child's family. The pond owner passes along a heritage of natural resources stewardship, while kids and their families learn how to fish and receive the benefits of enjoying the outdoors, improved communication, relaxation, and constructive use of leisure time. The Division benefits by having more avid anglers and advocates for Alabama's natural resources.
