The Little Lehigh Chapter is beginning its second year as a re-chartered Chapter. Thanks to everyone who supported us this past year and we look forward to your continued support this year. We have several priorities for this year including increasing membership, continuing and expanding our Trout In the Classroom program, a monofilament recycling program, stream clean-up this Fall, a possible Youth Camp this Summer, fund raising and supporting our project through grant applications. If you have an interest in helping with any of these activities please speak with any of our officers or directors. You can decide and limit the extent of your commitment to a project. Our objective is to get as many members involved and comfortable with the level of their self regulated time commitment.
Please plan to attend our January 8, 2014 meeting to hear more about Chapter plans for the year…feel free to bring a friend.
