The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and I’m Hooked, Inc. have found common cause in their desire to connect children, families, and communities to nature. Fishing has been the lure for I’m Hooked in this endeavor for 30 years while the USFWS has been connecting to the community at area National Wildlife Refuges for over 50 years.
Working together to tell a shared story, I’m Hooked and the USFWS desire to send a message that fishing is for everyone, no matter where you live or what challenges life throws at you. But having fish to catch and beautiful places to catch them doesn’t happen by accident. It takes the active care of our shared lands and waters by organizations and the community for the opportunities to exist.
