Lessons from a fish and game club that’s thriving in the city
Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.
The Osgoode Township Fish, Game and Conservation Club is a charter organization of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, and operates within Ottawa’s city limits. Lawrence talks to the club’s President, Barry Lancaster, to learn how a number of small outdoor clubs banded together. Lancaster explains why this was the best way to fight for the right to fish and hunt lands that suddenly were amalgamated under the newly expanded City of Ottawa. Not only is the Osgoode club thriving, it’s working with youth and partner organizations to promote conservation and an appreciation and the outdoors.
