20th Annual Bear Creek Watershed Symposium

 This symposium offers many different agencies providing students with hands-on activities highlighting conservation and watershed health.   Our clubs, RFF & SOFF in Grants Pass are partnering to pull this off.  We need about 10-12 fly tyers plus an equal number of casters to work with about 200 students.  Last year we had about 20 volunteers to help make this a success.  It would be great to have a few more to allow for breaks.  Expert skills are NOT necessary just a willingness to have a positive experience with the kids.  We can also use a couple "herders" to get the kids cycled to the activity areas in an efficient manner.  More ladies are welcome and greatly admired by the young female students.  A lunch will be provided as well as all tying materials, rods and vices although if you have a favorite vice for demo purposes bring it along.  To the folks that helped out last year, thank you.  Please help us again if you can and bring along your fishing buddies to join us.  To those that are new to this activity, please, please come join the party, it really is a positive encounter with our youth.  Contact Ken Bonsi( or 541-899-9981) to sign up or find out more details.  Give me your contact info (email and phone) along with what your participation preference might be (casting, tying or herding).  We need to have a committed group of 20 by the middle of April or we may need to cancel.
