The volunteers of Vanishing Paradise’s Sporting Council all have a real passion for the outdoors and for passing on our nation’s conservation legacy. These individuals are working to enhance and expand Vanishing Paradise’s reach so sportsmen and women across the country are aware of the Mississippi River Delta’s importance to fish and waterfowl—and become inspired to take action to protect this great American landscape.
