Proud Virginia Wildlife Grant Recipient!

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Wildlife Foundation of Virginia have partnered together to support engaging youth in the outdoors with a grant funding program. This effort is supported through gear purchases, fundraisers and private donations.

This year, BRDC applied for and received this grant to help meet our mission and get youth outside and engaged through kayaking, providing them with the opportunity to learn an enriching lifelong hobby and acquire basic outdoor skills such as camping and fishing. This grant will also provide comprehensive, safe paddling opportunities to our regional youth.


We thank VDGIF and WFV for supporting our youth and assisting us in connecting youth to the outdoors!
