The Nat Greene Flyfishers are the Greensboro, NC affiliate chapter of both Trout Unlimited (TU) and the International Federation of Fly Fishermen (IFFF), national conservation organizations dedicated to maintaining our cold water resources. Past club conservation efforts have included stream cleanups, stream restoration, and support of local, state, and national fish and wildlife agencies in an effort to insure the preservation of our cold water fisheries.
Nat Greene takes an active role in educating our local children, adults, and scouting organizations in the principles of conservation, ecosystem management, and in introducing them to the enjoyment of tying, casting, and fishing artificial flies.
In addition to providing financial and volunteer assistance to conservation groups, the club arranges numerous "fun" fishing outings throughout the year. Also, our more experienced members share their expertise with fly tying, casting, fishing techniques, rod building, and other activities with the entire club. We welcome your support and participation!
We support Many worth while Endeavors
Trout in the Classroom (TIC) is an environmental education program in which students in grades k-12. In this program students raise trout from eggs to fry., monitor tank water quality., engage in stream habitat study., learn to appreciate water resources., begin to foster a conservation ethic. All of this grows to understanding the ecosystems.
Most programs end the year by releasing their trout in a state-approved stream near the school or within a nearby watershed. During the year each teacher tailors the program to fit his or her curricular needs. Therefore, each program is unique. TIC has interdisciplinary applications in science, social studies, mathematics, language arts, fine arts, and physical education. Please contact us if you are interested in starting a TIC at your school.Boy Scouts
