ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation’s “Take Me Fishing” campaign and Discovery Education have teamed up to create ExploretheBlue.com.
The online initiative was created to educate youth about the importance of outdoor recreational activities and the value of clean natural resources.
"Boating and fishing offer families the perfect opportunity to reconnect," RBFF President & CEO Frank Peterson said in a recent release from the organization. "Through ExploretheBlue.com, we want to inspire more families to get outside and experience the world around them. And with great resources like lesson plans and multimedia tools, we hope to aid in creating or further enhancing our stakeholders' own programs that introduce youth to the outdoors."
To celebrate the launch of ExploretheBlue.com, Take Me Fishing, Discovery Education, and Sports Authority have announced the Explore the Blue Essay Contest. By submitting an essay describing their favorite fishing or boating experience, one student will win a family vacation to Yellowstone National Park.
