Become an Anglers Fund Member
As anglers we have a special connection to rivers. They are our sources of recreation, beauty, excitement, and peace, and connect us with our appreciation for the outdoors. Whether spey casting to sea-run Steelhead or roll-casting to native Brookies, our experiences with fishing flow from and depend upon the rivers we love. The challenges facing fishing habitats are significant, whether from development, contamination, or other pressures. For all that we receive from them, we at American Rivers feel strongly that it is also our place to protect them.
To advance their protection and restoration, American Rivers, the nation’s leading river conservation organization, has created the Anglers Fund, a subset of the River Guardian program. This new initiative supports our river conservation efforts, especially those that conserve, restore and improve the fishing habitats that we anglers enjoy.
Virtually all of our river conservation projects directly impact the health of our nation’s fisheries. Whether we are removing defunct dams to connect fish populations in historic habitats or securing Wild and Scenic designations to protect pristine river systems, the results are healthy rivers with healthy fish. Through an annual gift of $1,000 or more, you will be joining a group of like-minded anglers who are dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring the places we fish.
As a member of the Anglers Fund, in addition to the benefits of the River Guardians, you will also receive:
- Updates on our work conserving and restoring historic fish habitats and fishing areas
- Special invitations to unique fishing experiences with our expert conservation staff and other supporters, such as fishing trips and regional field trips to conservation sites
- Invitations to webinars on fishing habitat conservation
- Recognition in our Annual Report as a member of the Anglers Fund
- A copy of Confluence Films’ “Connect” film of inspiring fly-fishing cinematography.
More important than these benefits is the meaningful impact you will have on the rivers we collectively love to fish. Become a member of the Anglers Fund today!
