Outdoors Notebook: Grants to Boost Grassroots Conservation


Frye, Bob, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


A local Trout Unlimited chapter and a conservation district are among the groups that will share $60,000 in grants.

The Coldwater Heritage Partnership a" a cooperative effort of Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds a" awards money to organizations "to protect and conserve Pennsylvania's coldwater stream habitats."

"This type of grassroots conservation work is vital for the future of the state's coldwater streams and wild trout fisheries," said the commission's executive director, John Arway.

The Forbes Trail Chapter of Trout Unlimited is getting $6,000 to begin reconnecting Mill Creek to the delayed harvest section of Loyalhanna Creek. The work will involve trout habitat restoration and stream bank stabilization adjacent to the new Ligonier Valley Trail and Bikeway.

The work is meant to not only improve trout fishing, but reduce flooding in Ligonier Borough.

The Somerset County Conservation District will get $5,628 to assess the Whites Creek watershed and obtain baseline data that can be used to ensure "ecologically safe future development" in that area.

"Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited is excited to award grants to worthy organizations for the conservation and protection of their local streams," stated Ken Undercoffer, the former Greensburg resident and president of Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited.
