The Alberta Fish and Game Association received a huge boost on Monday (Nov.26).
Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jessica Littlewood stopped by the Lamont Trout Pond to present a $100,000 cheque to Doug Butler, the president of the association.
"It's very exciting. Historically the Alberta government has always given a grant to the Alberta Fish and Game Association for our operating procedures throughout the year because we work closely together," said Butler.
The donation is for the entire province-wide organization. It will be going towards growing and maintaining the group’s traditions and conservation.
"Fishing and hunting is a huge past time in Alberta so it's important to support those that help it flourish and keep it sustainable for the long-term," said Littlewood.
The Alberta Fish and Game Association is divided into six zones with more than 25,000 members in over 80 clubs.
