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.
