Community Development and Promotion
Community Improvements are critical to ensure the stability and growth of towns, cities, and regions as a whole. Historical and recreational assets along with community pride are important aspects that we embrace and promote.
Habitat Improvement and Preservation
We look to utilize funding to help clean and improve the Ten Mile Watershed.We recognize that water is only as clean as the land it flows through as we focus not only on the streams, but the nearby lands as well. The cleanup and improvements will help benefit the existing habitat not only for fish and wildlife, but will also benefit anyone wishing to experience biking, camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking, hunting, and kayaking. We also promote the stocking of trout, warm water fish, and game birds throughout and along the Ten Mile Watershed. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the outdoors to its fullest and we are trying to give people that opportunity.
Education of America’s Youth
We aim to support our youth. One goal is to provide scholarships to high school students going on to pursue a secondary education. Our future depends on our young people and we are dedicated to promoting and encouraging volunteer services to improve our communities. The scholarship criteria will reflect this mission. Additionally, we plan to offer classes to expand the knowledge of the outdoors. These classes shall include, but are not limited to boating, fishing, hunting, and stream habitat. The sky is the limit and through necessary funding that invests the future of America, we can help develop our youth into citizens and stewards of the great outdoors.
Veteran and Disabled Citizens
Just because someone may be disabled, this does not mean they shouldn’t be able to experience the same things as those that are not. Whether born with a disability or injured in battle, we want to do all we can to help those with disabilities to experience the outdoors otherwise unavailable. We are proud to support our veterans and strive to keep them involved in all that we do.
