ONGOING PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES
THAT THE FEDERATION SUPPORTS

 

 
       It is hard for the Federation not to be proud of its members who have volunteer their time and expertise in a wide variety of programs in Orange County. This page highlights some of their activities. Working with a school program, teaching a Hunter Education Class, being a guide and providing a hunting dog for a Youth Hunt at Stewart Forest, donating deer or helping with the Venison Donation program, attending meetings and joining various groups and adversary boards to help preserve and expand our access to hunting and fishing areas; these are all some of the activities that the Federation and its members are involved with.  
 

EDUCATION

 
        Every year members of the Federation and others help with a large variety of program across Orange County. Federation members and Federation member clubs teach outdoor reaction activities such as fly fishing and gun safety in local schools and at special events. Federation members and member clubs also hold NRA safety classes, teach the required Gun and Bow Hunter and Trapping Education Classes.

Venison Donation Coalition

 
       We have participated in Venison Donation Coalition programs by not only donating and securing venison and other wildlife for the project but also by publicizing the program and securing grants and facilities for the use of the program. Through this program across the state, hundreds of thousands of pounds of venison has been donated to various programs.

STOCKING PROGRAMS

 
       Annually, the Federation assists, and stocks on its own, over 30,000 trout in open waters in Orange County such as the Woodbury Creek, the Moodna Creek, the Ramapo River, Rutgers Creek, the Shinglekill River, the Shawangunk Creek, the Neversink River, Queensboro Creek, Walton Lake, Round Lake, Washington Lake, the senior citizens' lake at that location, and many of the Bear Mountain/Harriman State Park lakes. Additionally, there are several open land sites where the Federation stocks quail and pheasants.

LAND CONSERVATION &
PRESERVING HUNTING & FISHING

 
 
     Without the lands to hunt on and the lakes and streams to fish in our sports will die. If we are not able to participate in our favorite activities in our local communities, our sports will not survive for long. The Federation has always had as one of its main goals to increase the availability of places to go and to keep those places that we have now.

Several years ago, the Federation began constructing a fishing site for the physically challenged on the Neversink River in Cuddebackville, New York, only to have a large portion washed out with ice and flooding conditions. A rejuvenation and completion of the site is scheduled to resume in 1999.
