These fishing events are designed to create an environment in which both children and volunteers will benefit by each one bringing to the event their own experiences and lessons to share.

This will also increase awareness of disabled and disadvantaged children in local communities.At the events, the children are provided the following:- Educational opportunities to learn about water and fish as natural resources.- An introduction to recreational fishing and the enjoyment of the outdoors.- An increased awareness among all participants to the capabilities of children who are disabled and disadvantaged.- Encouragement to continue participation in fishing by providing opportunities for children and their families /care givers to develop necessary skills in fishing.- Increased visibility of Reclamation's recreational resources and fishing opportunities.RECIPIENT INVOLVEMENT Recipient involvement includes, but is not limited to:- Providing pre-event information and event planning guides.- Providing leadership for the planning, organization, coordination and supervision of events and event liability insurance.- Working with Reclamation's event coordinators to establish dates and times of specific events at Reclamation facilities.
