What is SRI Field News and Why is it Important?


Have you wondered what the natural, rugged environment looks like from the perspectives of diverse inner-city youth? How do you think a veteran feels when they are connecting to lands outside of a war zone and even away from society’s pressures to melt back into the community like they never left? SRI FIELD News is to provide meaningful perspective from the next generation for future generations. With reporting done by SRI youth leaders while in the field on a deployment, our environmental concerns and issues that are noticed during fly fishing-centered deployments are
brought to a more substantial light in hopes that more demographics find it imperative to take immediate personal action. Deployments take place on public lands, wildlife refuges, and sacred Indian nation territory - all which hunger for a need to be advocated and supported for protection. SRI FIELD News provides news through digital communication and social media via live and recorded video as a main tool of broadcasting. Common topics for SRI FIELD News
reports include but are not limited to the environment, rivers and their ecosystems, fisheries, public issues and concerns surrounding the lands and waters such as wild land and wildlife protection, and personal encounter stories in the field.

What are the outcomes?

They will learn how to develop a story line, interview, investigate, translate, and ultimately report on their FIELD findings. They will be nature’s ambassador voice to the community. Description of work and Description of Likely Outcomes if Successful Our objective is to educate and empower two major, underserved demographics within
our community through rich, investigative learning experiences, and environmental justice: inner-city youth and recently returned military veterans. We merge these two groups together on outdoor educational fly fishing “deployments” to wild rivers and public lands that are accessible to all. Mother Nature provides the raw beauty, we
provide the opportunity of a lifetime, and youth and veterans build authentic relationships in safe places to heal from battle wounds of the streets and war zones through the art of fly fishing. SRI stands out from other organizations our program as each deployment, which is rooted in fly fishing and conservation, focuses on simultaneously integrating four components:
