Smart Grant

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description Michael Browne, a 16-year-old Boy Scout received a $500 grant from TURI last year for his “Get the Lead Out of Fishing” Eagle Scout project. Not only was his project successful, but Michael received the Hero of Conservation Award by Field and Stream magazine, the “world’s leading outdoor magazine” that boasts a circulation of 1.5 million. Through his project, Michael attended fishing derbies and offered anglers lead-free sinkers in exchange for lead sinkers. He raised awareness of the dangers of lead to wild game, birds, and fish by distributing educational materials to more than 500 Boston area Boy Scouts, families, and area residents.
