Project Details

Over the course of three years, Wheelin' Sportsmen NWTF held 10 events that provided angler education, access information, and equipment to 574 children with disabilities in Grand Haven and Muskegon, Michigan.  Participant surveys, administered one year after the event, indicated that 40 percent had never participated in fishing activities before the event, 25 percent did not know before the event that Michigan had barrier-free public fishing opportunities, 62 percent learned new skills and/or stewardship techniques, and 75 percent participated in fishing again following the event.
