South Platte Eleven Mile Canyon COC Grant Request

GRTU has received a Coldwater Outreach Conservation (COC) Fund Grant Request from the Cheyenne Mountain Chapter, Trout Unlimited, for work on the South Platte River in Elevenmile Canyon at Camp Alexander. This camp is owned by the Boy Scouts of America and is heavily used by Boy Scout troops from Texas. The project involved Trees for Trout, a program that was featured in 2005 on the Trout Unlimited National Conservation Tour. Both Mick and myself had a chance to witness this onstream conservation work and its benefits to the South Platte River.

Last year, GRTU established the COC Fund to assist other Trout Unlimited Chapters with funding of coldwater conservation projects thoughout the US. Our work with the Hiawatha Chapter Trout Unlimited on Trout Run Creek in Minnesota earned GRTU national recognization for it outreach conservation efforts.

This years application comes from a Colorado chapter and on waters familar to many GRTU members.

This application will be posted for member feedback and will be considered for funding by the GRTU Board at the April meeting.

Details of the grant application and supporting information can be found at:
