The Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited (PATU) is pleased to announce that eleven grants totaling $120,000 have been awarded to conservation organizations across Pennsylvania through the Coldwater Heritage Partnership’s Coldwater Conservation Grant Program. These funds will be used to perform stream assessments and develop conservation plans in three watersheds and complete on-the-ground projects, such as construction of instream fish habitat structures and stabilization of eroding stream banks in eight additional watersheds.
These grants are made possible through the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (PA DCNR) through a Community Conservation Partnerships Program (C2P2) grant administered by the Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, and through funding from the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds. The Coldwater Heritage Partnership is a collaboration between PATU, PA DCNR, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, and the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds.
