Resource Action Fund
The Resource Action Fund (RAF) was established by MTAFS in 1989 and has provided over $140,000 to support projects relating to Montana's aquatic resources. Originally designed to support small outreach and on-the-ground projects proposed by Chapter members, the fund has evolved to consider all types of RAF proposals, including habitat, management, conservation, fish passage, research, and data management projects from both members and non-members. Focus areas include projects showing clear benefit to native and special concern species.
Wally McClure Scholarship
The MTAFS lost an outstanding member and friend in November of 2003. Wally McClure was an incredible advocate and leader for conservation and wise management of aquatic resources in Montana.
In an effort to continue his legacy and promote educational opportunities for fisheries students in Montana, the MT Chapter AFS established an annual scholarship in his name for undergraduate and graduate fisheries students.
