The Lions Park Pond in College Place used to be stocked with rainbow trout by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife for an annual Youth Fishing Derby [left], attracting about 100 kids and their families every year. Today, problems with sediment and water quality have brought the beloved community program to a halt. Tri-State Steelheaders hopes to restore the pond so that stocking can resume — but we need your help.
Completing the preliminary design for restoring the pond is expected to cost $10,000. So far, we’ve raised $7,995 toward that goal, but we can’t move forward until we raise the remaining funds. Your donation in any amount will help introduce a new generation of College Place kids to outdoor recreation, so please consider giving today!
