FlatsWorthy for Students

FlatsWorthy offers free memberships for students.  Our student-run organization works to communicate the FlatsWorthy mission to young people throughout Texas.  Not only does FlatsWorthy encourage getting kids involved in the outdoors, we want to make sure they have respect for the resource.

 We want to ensure we leave this place better than we found it, and that includes supporting the next generation of anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Nurturing Youth Anglers Through Collaboration

We partnered with the local AgriLife Extension 4-H club to help them promote their sportfishing program, with an eye towards instilling a sense of respect for the resource in future generations. Any cultural shift requires a generational effort.  Introducing our philosophy to students ensures stewardship for the resource is carried into the future.

Out of this partnership arose a robust, student-centered focus, which includes sponsorship of the annual Kids Fishing Day (which reaches 4-H students in multiple counties), 2 college scholarships awarded annually, and student representatives on the FlatsWorthy Core Group.

Code of Angler Respect

One of our primary goals at FlatsWorthy is to help students with ideas to further the sustainability of our Texas Bays.

 Be considerate toward the space, time and efforts of fellow anglers.

Know before you go — look for other anglers before entering a fishing area.

Support habitat restoration projects.

Respect the Law
