TU Muddy Creek and Codorus Chapters Win York County Conservation District’s Outstanding Partnering Organization Awards

Outstanding Partnering Organization: Muddy Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited

“The goals of Muddy Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited (MCTU) include increasing the opportunities of recreational fishing on the watershed by improving the water quality, reducing midsummer stream temperatures by creating riparian buffer zones on its headwaters, improving landowner relations for the enhancement and enjoyment of the watershed, reducing downstream sedimentation effects using streambank restoration techniques, and re-introducing wild trout to the watershed where they once existed. MCTU achieves their mission to conserve, protect, and restore the Muddy Creek watershed for future use by hosting educational events and participating in tree plantings and stream projects. Several members of MCTU assisted at the York County Conservation District’s first fishing derby at Glenn Hope Agricare. Additionally, a member of MCTU serves as the Fish and Boat Commission alternative on YCCD’s Dirt and Gravel Low Volume Road (DGLVR) Quality Assurance Board (QAB).”

Outstanding Partnering Organization: Codorus Chapter of Trout Unlimited

“The Codorus Chapter of Trout Unlimited (CCTU) engages in a wide variety of activities to promote clean water and healthy trout habitat. From hands-on stream improvement work to educational and instructional programs to community outreach and partnerships, they’re always ready to roll up their sleeves and help however they can. The chapter was founded in 1988 by a small but dedicated group of individuals interested in preserving and enhancing the blossoming Codorus Creek trout fishery. Over the years, the chapter has grown and flourished and now includes more than 260 members. CCTU has established relationships with landowners and then subsequently sponsored several Exelon Habitat Improvement Program projects throughout streams in the Codorus Creek watershed.”
