Announcement: TroutRoutes joins Backcountry Hunters & Anglers as a Corporate Partner for 2023

January, 17 2023
TroutRoutes is committed to Conservation, Inclusivity, and Accessibility, and we’re stepping up our efforts this year by partnering with several key organizations who share our values.⁣

Backcountry Hunters and Anglers was a clear frontrunner when exploring organizations dedicated to Accessibility; their Mission couldn’t be stated more clearly: “Backcountry Hunters & Anglers seeks to ensure North America’s outdoor heritage of hunting and fishing in a natural setting, through education and work on behalf of wild public lands, waters and wildlife.” Through a network of local chapters, BHA is at the forefront of national legislative efforts to maintain access to the public lands and waterways we rely on, especially when trout fishing.⁣

We couldn’t be more excited to be working with BHA. Keep a look out for stream cleanup events, Collegiate Program highlights and more throughout the year! Make sure you visit their website to learn more about BHA’s work on a local and national level, and explore options to get involved in public land and conservation advocacy
