Dan Draz Posted June 11, 2008 Report Share Posted June 11, 2008 So, I asked my 10 year old son the other day if he was interested in joining ISA and having a membership in his own name? The first thing out of his mouth was "I haven't done any conservation work yet!" That was his biggest concern. I was amazed! So, I went on the website this afternoon and signed him up for membership. While Quinn fishes with me, it occured to me that that we as an organization should be encouraging our children to participate in conservation events or have children's conservation events when we can. Afterall, they are going to be fishing this water long after we've gone and if they buy into the conservation ethic at a young age, they are going to be less likely to dump things into the water down the road and discourage others from doing so. Unlike some fishing clubs we belong to where he enjoys going to the monthly meetings, listening to speakers and winning raffle prizes it is not lost on him at this age that there is more to this equation than that. Something to kick around! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
