  • coloring book of FW aquatic life wanted - NANFA Organization - NANFA Forum
    book pages of assorted subjects and crayons They said if I can provide a template for one on aquatic life they will hand out those too I have no artistic talent so I was wondering if anyone else has any This actually started out as a joke that I was going to get them for mosquito larva and daphnia The Summer Reading Program will start soon and that was the original impetus for the tank It has occured to me before that a NANFA coloring book would be good as part of an outreach program Please post this in the correct forum section Thanks Chuck Church Indianapolis Indiana USA Back to top Quote MultiQuote 2 Guest farmertodd Guest farmertodd Guests Posted 02 April 2012 08 47 PM Dave Neely put together one on fish that highlight natives although wasn t focused on natives This is something my friend Ryan might enjoy doing Did you ever see the magnetic stream Chuck http forum nanfa o magnetic fish I d be glad to send you the source files if you d like to print them out on magnets My nephew ended up using a whiteboard to play with the critters Todd Edited

    you Steve Back to top Quote MultiQuote 5 Guest EricaWieser Guest EricaWieser Guests Posted 04 January 2012 12 58 PM Not trying to change the subject here but I prefer kayaking sit in kayaks anyway You have a lower center of gravity and they feel nice and stable The design makes a big difference I ve got a couple that are pretty comfy stable and fairly dry Year before last I took a good friend of mine kayak fishing He had never been in a kayak before and he was 81 years old We spent nearly 12 hours in those kayaks and he loved it I won t go any further but there are a number of factors about different kayaks and canoes that need to be considered before choosing which one is best for you Steve I ve heard that the closed top sit in kayaks are a lot better than the open top ones I might try them one day Back to top Quote MultiQuote 6 Guest MichiJim Guest MichiJim Guests Posted 04 January 2012 04 45 PM I haven t been to a convention yet but I went on the Tate s Hell trip in October First its a great bunch of people and everyone brings some unique perspective to the party As far as the physical level you will be surprised what you will do to get to the next spot that just might hold that fish or plant species we ve been talking about all day I plan to go You cannot help but learn if you do no more that keep quiet and listen Even more if you participate I am not really answering any of your questions and I don t want to speak for the organizers But these are great people and I have to imagine that there will be something for pretty much everyone Looking forward to seeing you there Jim Back to top Quote MultiQuote 7 Guest Skipjack Guest Skipjack Guests Posted 04 January 2012 06 33 PM Brian Zimmerman is organizing this event and is very on top of his game He works for DNR I expect an all around excellent convention And if you are tired of slipping on rocks get felt wading shoes Ohio creeks are not particularly slippery though I am certain that Brian will choose trip leaders who know their fishes well enough to steer you away from our T E species You can choose your trips and opt out of the canoe trip if you like I assume Brian will pull permits that cover the convention If you arrive early or stay late you will be on your own and will need an Ohio license and must follow Ohio regulations Back to top Quote MultiQuote 8 Guest keepnatives Guest keepnatives Guests Posted 04 January 2012 08 44 PM I am debating going to the Ohio 2012 convention If I do depends on what expenses I hit between now and then U never been to a convention before The Summer American Currents issue said it was going from thursday to sunday with days dedicated to a field trip talks a canoe kayak trip and collecting I have some questions 1 The days were mentioned but not the exact dates will that be announced soon Will it happen rain or shine 2 Will their be a mention of near bye affordable hotels or other places to stay 3 Is it good to arrange the trip to go a day before and after the alloted time to scout the area or to sample on your own 4 Will their be a guide to advise you on which species are threatened endangered and how to identify them so we do not take what we shouldn t 5 On a Virginia sampling trip with friends I fell behind trying to navigate dangerously slippery rocks and were told that being dragged through hazardous terrain at high speed aspect is worse at actual convention sampling trips Is their any way to organize a group that takes a more casual pace 6 I never canoed or kayaked before I am not sure how to handle to canoe kayak trip 7 I heard their is often a sale or auction at these trips where everything from tanks to art work are offered Can anyone buy a tank or commission an art work to submit for the auction 8 What kind of field trips should I expect Josh 2 Will their be a mention of near by affordable hotels or other places to stay The best thing is to get together with some others and split the price on the conference site accomodations The price ends up very affordable Being on site in the midst of everything is huge advantage for fun and fellowship 3 Is it good to arrange the trip to go a day before and after the alloted time to scout the area or to sample on your own I much prefer an extra day or 2 before and or after it offers a bit of insurance regarding weather and for me gives the opportunity to get some target species early so I am a little less likely to drag others thru dangerous hazardous terrain at high speed Nativeplanter unless darkness is moving in Also often there are other activities you can participate in like aquarium visits tours camping etc The way I look at it is if I m spending a fair amount of money to get somewhere I may as well get the most out of my time there 5 On a Virginia sampling trip with friends I fell behind trying to navigate dangerously slippery rocks and were told that being dragged through hazardous terrain at high speed aspect is worse at actual convention sampling trips Is their any way to organize a group that takes a more casual pace Some guides are easier to follow some more of a challenge especially on those mountain passes Talk

    14 PM Thank you guys For now because of our close proximity I think I will work a bit with Tony and get a game plan together for the informational packet Once we have a few ideas outlined I will submit them so that others can help add or delete Martin If you can start a rough draft of anything that you can think of that is useful I would appreciate it It could be as simple as jotting down ideas of past outreach programs that I could include You are a long time member and have a better feel for what NANFA has done that would be viewed as beneficial by potential donors Josh you have learned much since joining NANFA and you live in a state with many endemic and sensitive species Maybe you could put something together about how your involvement with NANFA has opened your eyes to the importance of protecting these sensitive fishes which in turn ties in closely with water quality Keep in mind that most of the people who might donate money will not be fish savvy Too much latin might be a turn off Focusing on education and environmental concerns will be very helpful Links between degrading surface water quality how it affects local fish and ultimately drinking water would be excellent Many wealthy people are very health conscious Again than you guys for offering to help I welcome any and all ideas as I really don t know what the heck I am doing So any suggestion could be helpful no matter how elementary it might seem Thank you all Matt Back to top Quote MultiQuote 6 Guest Mike Guest Mike Guests Posted 06 December 2010 04 30 PM I think fundraiseing is a great idea besides individules conservation clubs of other clubs might be a good sorcce too Also take whatever they are willing to donate on the fliers you can suggest 500 if you want but have a spot for other I know the club I belong to is usualy willing to give 100 200 for a good cause without to much discution at board meetings But over that it gets sticky This and other funfaiseing ideas should be tried before increasing the dues Lake County fish and Game Protective Association The oldest Indiana Conservation Club at one time had well over 1000 members When I joined there was still over 800 Over the years the club raised the dues to pay for the large newsletter and plaques for the diferent hunting fishing shooting events throughout the year Well the News letter turned into a one page thing right after they dubbled the dues from 10 to 20 they no longer give plaques for the contests now they give cirtificates We lost a number of members The club dubbled the dues again dropped the free membership with the Annual Game Dinner Dues are now 40 a year We own property now and that was the main reason for raiseing
