Fisheries Habitat Projects
The Club has a long history, beginning in 1979, working to improve habitat in the Brule and its tributaries. In the summer and in conjunction with the DNR, club members and other volunteers restore stream features needed for fish spawning, growing, and feeding. Click on Habitat Management Overview for more detail.
The Club started spring cleanups in 1972. Every year, members meet on a Saturday in April to keep the Brule River and its surroundings clean and beautiful. Beginning in 1993, Boy Scout troop 211 started helping the Club too. To make things even better, local Cub Scouts joined the cleanups in 2006. Club members also encourage everyone using the Brule to pick up any trash encountered along the river throughout the year. Remember to leave the area cleaner than you found it! Click on Spring Cleanup to see some photos from previous cleanups.
The Club has awarded an annual $1,000 scholarship since 1999, depending on funds availability and applicant eligibility. Scholarships go to regional college students who are studying in a natural resources field. The scholarship is intended for students in junior, senior, or graduate level at a college or university.

Challenge Center Canoe Trip
The Challenge Center serves the city of Superior and Douglas County by assisting people with special needs or disabilities. Club members in conjunction with the Brule River State Forest began taking Challenge Center clients on annual canoe trips in 2003. The trip is one that the clients look forward to and is followed by a great picnic lunch. Click on Challenge Center for more information.
