2002 NANFA Raffle Announcement

One good way to help NANFA (and hopefully yourself, too!) is to buy raffle tickets.  Once again, this annual event offers you a chance at a nice prize and the satisfaction that you're contributing to projects like American Currents and the conservation grants.

2nd Prize: Greenside Darter carving by artist Leo S. Long

The greenside darter is the 2002 convention's "mascot".  Leo carves beautiful one-of-a-kind 3-dimensional fishes, meticulously wood-burning every scale and even the lateral lines (both sides of the carving) and then air-brushing the fish in life-like colors.  These are absolutely gorgeous works of art.  Sorry, no photo of the actual artwork because it's not finished yet, but here is a rainbow darter pair by Leo.
