2011 River Conservation & Fly Fishing Youth Camp Accepting Applications

Colorado Trout Unlimited is now accepting applications from students aged 14 to 18 for its sixth annual River Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp, June 12-17, 2011 at the High Lonesome Ranch near DeBeque, Colorado. The camp is designed to educate students on the importance of coldwater conservation and provide hands-on fly-fishing instruction. Students will also  participate in a watershed project to repair habitat in a nearby stream. Camp classes include: principles of ecology, hydro-geology, aquatic vertebrate and invertebrate sampling, hydrology, trout behavior, trout stream entomology, the biology of pollution, acid deposition, and  politics of conservation and human effects on the Rocky Mountains. 

Like most TU chapters across Colorado, Boulder Flycasters will pay all the fees for one camper.
