Coldwater Heritage Partnership Announces 2012 Grant Awards


Coldwater Heritage Partnership Announces 2012 Grant Awards

The Coldwater Heritage Partnership recently announced that over $58,000 in grants have been awarded to local organizations to protect and conserve Pennsylvania’s coldwater streams. The Coldwater Heritage Partnership is a cooperative initiative amongst Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, and the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds.

"This type of grassroots conservation work is vital for the future of the state's coldwater streams and wild trout fisheries,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “Coldwater conservation plans help to build local awareness and support for the long-term stewardship of coldwater streams and their surrounding watersheds.”

This year the Coldwater Heritage Partnership awarded both planning and implementation grants. Organizations funded by a planning grant will be responsible for creating a Coldwater Conservation plan that:

  • Gathers existing data about the coldwater ecosystem;
  • Identifies potential impacts, threats, problems and opportunities to our coldwater streams;
  • Formulates a plan of action for proposed conservation and protection strategies; and,
  • Builds community awareness and support for the conservation of our coldwater streams.

Organizations that received an implementation grant will complete projects identified in previously completed coldwater conservation plans. Potential projects must enhance, conserve, or protect coldwater streams for which the original coldwater conservation plan recommended.

“Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited is excited to award grants to worthy organizations for the conservation and protection of their local streams,” stated Ken Undercoffer, President of the Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited.

Grants have been given to the following organizations
