Local Trout Unlimited Chapter Supports River Restoration Efforts

July 3, 2003

NEWS RELEASE - For Immediate Release Contact: Mark D. Johnson, Biologist Conservation Resource Alliance 10850 Traverse Hwy Suite1111 (231) 946-6817 LOCAL TROUT UNLIMITED CHAPTER SUPPORTS RIVER RESTORATION EFFORTS TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN, July 3, 2003. The Pine River Chapter of Trout Unlimited recently contributed funding to three watershed projects in northwest Michigan. The chapter granted $8,500 to the Conservation Resource Alliance (CRA) for watershed projects on the Pine and Betsie Rivers, and an additional $1,000 was granted for work on the Little Manistee River. Funds were raised at the chapter's annual banquet held in April at Crystal Mountain. According to Patrick Kochanny, chapter president, "These projects are consistent with the mission of Trout Unlimited, and these rivers are enjoyed by many of our members. These grants will help insure that our members will continue to enjoy quality cold-water resources like the Little Manistee, Pine and Betsie rivers." The funding will be used to purchase materials for restoration projects such as fish cover installations, erosion control, and other habitat improvements. "It's through local support and the efforts of volunteers that many of our projects get done. Without this type of support, the resource would lose out", says Mark Johnson, a biologist with CRA. "We really appreciate the efforts of all those who work to make so many habitat improvements happen."
