Embrace-a-Stream Grant Announced

The Chattahoochee River Wild Trout Improvement Project was selected as a 2019 Embrace-a-Stream Grant recipient (one of 29 across the country). EAS is a matching grant program administered by Trout Unlimited that awards funds to TU chapters and councils for coldwater fisheries conservation.

In partnership with the Chattahoochee River National Recreational Area, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the Oconee River TU Chapter, the University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and the Upper Chattahoochee TU Chapter, the group identified Crayfish Creek, a heavily impaired tributary of the Chattahoochee River, where streambank erosion and lack of riparian canopy cover is degrading water quality within reach of the well known spawning habitat for wild brown trout.
