What is a logic model? This tool captures a program in a graphic format, clarifying activities and outcomes and communicating the anticipated results to the funder. Many federal, state, and foundation grants request applicants to submit a logic model as a part of a grant application. Building on principles from Grant Writing I, you will develop a complete logic model for your program that will support both your grant writing and grant implementation efforts.

You are responsible for providing your rod and reel (can be rented at local fly shops), fishing license, sack lunch, sunglasses (essential for eye protection), and either waders and boots or clothes and shoes that can get wet. A selection of flies and other tackle will be provided for our river day.
