York Bassmasters is a group of anglers who are focused on issues related to fisheries and aquatic resource conservation.
Their commitment to protecting the bass fisheries of the future inspired them to volunteer in assisting with the Rogers Reservoir Habitat Restoration project.
This group fearlessly planted 168 trees within an area identified as “difficult” and “hazardous”, due to the steep slopes of the river bank and close proximity to the Holland River.
This group will continue their conservation efforts by coordinating future community tree plantings and providing support for the installation of habitat features in the meadows and wetlands of the reservoir.
