At Engine 8 we take pride in supporting several non-profit groups through donations and pro bono design services. One Montana non-profit we’re super excited about is Yellowstone Country Guardians (YCG). Under the dynamic leadership of Executive Director Michael Leach, YCG has become a invaluable resource for connecting teens to Yellowstone Park and inspiring a new brand of environmental stewardship rooted in community.
Engine 8 recently teamed with YCG to design marketing materials for YCG’s annual River Guardian Fly Fishing School to be held August 1st-5th. The five-day youth program gives teens an in-depth understanding of river ecology, fly fishing, hydrology and trout management. The 2010 River Guardian program was such a huge success, Michael and the YCG board realized it was time to harness that enthusiasm and spread the word.
YCG is known for its energetic, non-conventional programming and its fresh approach to environmental education that resonates with teens. Our job at Engine 8 was to communicate that youthful vigor in a way that would appeal to not only young people, but to sponsors and volunteers as well. We ended up developing an oversized postcard and t-shirt for the 2011 program. The postcards have already been distributed and are getting a lot of buzz. The tees should arrive by August 1st, just in time for River Guardian students to wear them as they cast away on the legendary Yellowstone River!
