USFWS Assistant Director of Fisheries & Habitat Conservation Bryan Arroyo signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Wednesday, August 10, 2011, with FLW Outdoors Foundation representatives.

FLW Outdoors President of Operations Kathy Fennel said, “We are proud to be partnering with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. To join forces with this agency in educating future generations of fishing enthusiasts is a testament to FLW Outdoors’ legacy as a leader in both professional and recreational fishing”
