Kidd and some friends started "Fishin' Buddies!" Inc. in 1991 with inner-city youth in mind. "It's a tremendous need," he says. "Kids need to know about conservation." Each year, more than 1,000 students, ages 6 to 18, participate in the group's programs, which focus on habitat restoration and land management. Kidd, who is president of the nonprofit, organizes tree plantings, fishing derbies, and the removal of invasive species at various ponds in the area.
