Goat Island Boat Club member Carl Cagle was recognized as a
Hero of Conservation by Toyota and Field & Stream magazine. Carl
was recognized for his lead in a fund raising effort by the South
Carolina Department of Natural Resources, which used a sterile
grass-eating carp to control the nonnative invasive weed "hydrilla".
Carl was also recognized for his annual lake cleanup work. See Carl's
entire article in the June 2011 issue of Field & Stream magazine on page
Carl's recognition earned him
a $500 grant from Toyota; which in typical fashion for Carl, he turned
around and donated the entire $500 to the Goat Island Boat Club
Congratulations Carl, you are truly a Hero of Conservation.
