How many on the forum have or plan to donate money to WRC? They have been a non-profit business since 1988 and have acquired quite a portfolio of riparian land. From what I have gathered, nearly all of the land has been made available for public use, to include fishing where allowed by state fisheries. The Public trust Doctrine and our right to access navigable waters has always been an important issue for me. My wife and I are considering some additional non-profit organizations to help and WRC has always been high on my list. They certainly seem consistent in their mission statement and appear to be a good place for those of us who love our nations rivers, their inhabitants, and our access to them, to lend support. I'm not sure what legal, binding provisions are in WRC's by-laws that assures all acquired lands remain open to public use -- it is definitely something I plan to check on with them. I like the idea of helping protect our nations rivers in a manner that assures future generations are able to enjoy them like many of us have... because, if we do come back in another life, there's some waters that have had my number and I'll want another shot .
