Training Alaska’s Next Generation of Conservationists


Written by: Phil Monahan

Last summer, nine youngsters from the Bristol Bay region of Alaska took part in the second annual Bristol Bay Fly Fishing & Guide Academy, sponsored in part by Trout Unlimited Alaska and the Nushagak-Mulchatna Wood-Tikchick Land Trust. The idea behind the school is to train a new generation of local kids to work in the sport-fishing industry, to learn about the region’s natural resources, and to become stewards of their homeland—protecting it against such threats as the proposed Pebble Mine.
