Thanks to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Wildlife Foundation of Virginia for supporting the Blue Ridge Discovery Center's efforts to connect our youth to the outdoors! This grant will provide a cache of fly tying materials and tools for our fly fishing programs. Fly fishing is a potential life long hobby that connects people directly to their surroundings. Learning to tie flies is a hands-on interest-driven activity that studies food chains, aquatic macroinvertebrates, and grand outdoor traditions.
