JCWA is sad to hear about the passing of Sam Petrill. Sam loved nature and was a good friend of JCWA. He was deeply committed to making Greenlick a safe and accessible place for fishing, and he was very involved in JCWA's Fishing Derby and Mentored Youth Trout Day programs. Please keep his family in your hearts. To plant a memorial tree in his honor, view the information below: legcy.co/3v4ISvM ...

It is Earth Month and every small step you take makes an impact🌎 Did you know that the average American family takes home almost 1,500 plastic shopping bags a year? According to Waste Management, only 1 percent of plastic bags are returned for recycling. That means that the average family only recycles 15 bags a year; the rest end up in landfills or as litter.
Make a small change and use reusable bags! JCWA has partnered with Nicole Seese to sell reusable bags for Earth Day from ThirtyOne. Use the link below and JCWA will receive 100% of the profit. Plus, you'll be doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint!
