Since 2002, the ACA has partnered with L.L. Bean to sponsor the Club Fostered Stewardship (CFS) Program. The CFS Program provides funding to local and regional paddling clubs that undertake stewardship projects on waterways in their area and take an active role in protecting and improving the nation's rivers, lakes and coastlines.
Check out what 2011 grant recipients did with their funds! Including restoration work, trail development, community building, cleanups, improving access for adaptive paddling, and more, the individuals and organizations featured here have demonstrated a love for paddling and a commitment to preserve the environments that we all hold dear.
