Since 2002, the ACA has partnered with L.L.Bean to provide the Club Fostered Stewardship (CFS) Grant Program to local paddling clubs and watershed organizations who are working to protect and preserve our nation’s waterways. 2015 marks the 103rd anniversary of L.L. Bean, as well as the 14th anniversary of our partnership together. The L.L.Bean CFS Grant Program has officially funded over 120 projects across the country.
By inspiring people to explore outdoors with quality products and demonstrating a corporate commitment to a sustainable future, L.L.Bean upholds the values and environmental commitments that are reflected in the paddling community. The ACA is proud to have L.L.Bean as a partner and to continue the legacy of fostering future generations of waterway stewards, as we have for over 130 years.
