KRC WARDEN PATROL FUND
California Department of Fish and Game
Kings River Warden Patrol Fund
Watch for the Frank P. Jones Memorial Warden Patrol Fund BBQ & Fundraiser in December
Modeled after a successful program implemented on the Kern River in 1995 to stop trout poaching, and named in memory of the Honorable Franklin P. Jones and his love for fly fishing and the great outdoors, this dedicated funding stream allows anyone and everyone--including you--to make a tax deductible donation to Kings River Conservancy that will be forwarded 100% through the Conservancy to the California Department of Fish and Game to fund extra Game Warden Patrols exclusively along the Kings River. This helps minimize ever-growing trout poaching pressure and ensures the continued success of the Kings River Fisheries programs.
Introduced during our Moonlight over the River event in 2009, and with your help, we are happy to report that over $20,000 in donations has been directed to the California Department of Fish and Game for the Enforcement Fund. In 2011 we received some of our best news yet in support of this program. Thanks to a generous grant from the Ted Martin Family all donations will be met with a two to one match at the end of each year, insuring that the program will be consistently funded at a minimum amount of $12,500 per year in perpetuity.
It's easy and fun to contribute. Every time you see a Game Warden patrolling near the river you get the satisfaction of knowing your generosity is helping protect the Kings River Fisheries programs.
Call our office for more details or simply make a donation noting your desire to help put Game Wardens on the Kings and we will do the rest. Remember, 100% of your tax deductible donation will be forwarded to the Department of Fish and Game. It's that easy! And the fishing is always good.
The annual Frank Jones Memorial Enforcement FundBarbecue and Fundraiser is held every December. It's a time to get out and enjoy an afternoon at the river with some great food for a good cause. The event is held in partnership with Fresno Fly Fishers for Conservation with the generous donations and support every year from their members.
