Chapter Wins Outstanding FYCCN Partner

Categories: Palm Beaches

First Tee – Palm Beaches was awarded the Regional Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network (FYCCN) 2021 Outstanding Partner Grand Prize Winner!

Florida Wildlife Commission Commissioner Gary Nicklaus contacted our Chapter to propose a golf and fishing pilot program. As a professional golfer and avid fisherman, Gary understands that the lakes on golf courses are typically rarely fished. Combining golf and fishing presents an incredible opportunity to bring together two sports that share in outdoor recreation.

FYCCN aims to uphold Florida’s outdoor heritage by educating and empowering Florida’s youth and educators with outdoor know-how and conservation concepts. Chapter students are ready to start fishing again once COVID is over and we can again visit area golf courses.
