The Outdoors Opens Minds & Possibilities...
Advising Outdoor Partners. Developing Programs. Training and Educating Diverse Audiences.
Our mission is to grow participation and diversity in outdoors and conservation activities by introducing and training urban and metropolitan region youth and their supporting adults in the "STEM education platform" of fishing, boating, archery, hunting, agriculture, equine, conservation, and wildlife education activities...
Our activities utilize the diverse outdoor and educational resources of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, surrounding states and parks affiliated with our Mid-Atlantic state agencies. We're happy to announce that our Mid-Atlantic Youth Anglers organization has become a part of the Legacy Land & Water Partners operation headquartered in Southern Chester County, PA (www.LegacyLandWater.org). Our outdoors training activities have now combined with Legacy's land protection activities.

Thanks for all the continued support to bring back the "Bass Elites" or one of the major TV tournaments from our hosting of the Delaware River Bassmaster Elite Series Tournament (PA, NJ, DE)! We couldn’t say it any better than this from the experience:
"I can't really explain what all happened in Philly on the Delaware River. I think it was the greatest fishing event I have ever attended and that could include Classic's as well. It really was because of the people from that area and I guess you just had to be there. Sure glad I got to experience it and thank you Philadelphia."
-Jerry McKinnis, Former President of Bassmaster
