Grandfather RD Supports The Local Community Through Fishing Event

The Grandfather Ranger District (RD) held a disabled persons fishing event at Boone Fork Pond, near Lenior, North Carolina, on May 16th to support the local community and allow disabled children and adults experience the joy of fishing in National Forests. The Grandfather RD has been organizing the event for over 20 years. The Grandfather Restoration Project, beyond restoring forest ecosystems, helps support the local community through events like these. With the pond at Boone Fork fully stocked with native trout, disabled members of the community were able to have a fun and educational day fishing with the help of Grandfather RD employees and local volunteers.
