Investing in Sensible Conservation

February 1, 2005

Protecting some of the country's most spectacular rivers for as long as the waters flow clear and unbridled. How's that for long-term ambition? The Conservation Resource Alliance is making it happen through their River Care Program. Based in Traverse City Michigan, CRA is coordinating projects on 15 watersheds throughout thirteen counties and there is still plenty more work to be done. Partnering with many diverse stakeholders to get real work done is what sets CRA apart from many other groups. It also makes them a natural teammate for Trout Unlimited.

The value of northern Michigan's beautiful natural resources is measured in part by the stewardship and interest of so many CRA supporters. Private dollars are making up more and more of their annual budget each year as they strive to keep pace with increasing pressure and declining government resources. Foundation grants and private donations are critical, in some cases go toward matching funds, and occasionally they support an entire project. The Elliott Donnelly Chapter of TU recently joined the River Care effort with a grant to CRA of $2,500 for habitat and restoration efforts on these very special northern streams.

People who care are helping change the future for Michigan's natural resources. CRA's individual membership has continued to increase in numbers and willingness to dig in with hands on commitment. Nearly 500 contributors stepped up to help out in 2003! Anyone with a passion for moving water and pristine wilderness will benefit by becoming a supporting member of CRA. Trout Unlimited members can increase their impact my also joining this dedicated organization.

CRA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, making your donations tax-deductible.
