BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — As demonstrated by the 2011 Annual Achievements in B.A.S.S. Conservation report, B.A.S.S. Nation clubs and members dive into action where fisheries and aquatic resource conservation are concerned.
The first ever B.A.S.S. report of Annual Achievements in Conservation clearly showed how clubs stepped up to provide almost 13,000 hours of effort to remove thousands of invasive plants, clean up tons of trash at ramps and waters, and improved more than 7,000 acres of fish habitat.
“Let’s demonstrate how much more we did in 2012,” said Noreen Clough, B.A.S.S. national conservation director. “We want to continue to report these outstanding grass-roots volunteer efforts in which you give back to fisheries resources throughout the year. Your conservation efforts support everything from helping defeat lead tackle bans and other restrictive fishing legislation, improve fish habitat on a grand scale, and help youth understand and appreciate the benefits of fishery resource conservation.”
Your work will be profiled on Bassmaster.com/conservation, and a compilation will be published in Bassmaster magazine.
