Help support the Youghiogheny Chapter of Trout Unlimited!

The Youghiogheny Chapter is participating in Trout Unlimited’s Embrace A Stream Challenge from November 6-12 – and we need your help! Our chapter recently received an Embrace A Stream grant for $5000.00 to support our Hoyes Run Riparian Zone Improvement Project and now we have a chance to raise even more for this important project!
Sponsored with a $50,000 prize pool from Trout Unlimited and Orvis, the Embrace A Stream Challenge is a 7-day online giving event to “Give Where You Fish” and support our project and the projects of other TU chapters across the country.
Your donation of $10 or more can help us unlock additional funds for the important work of exclusion fencing, construction of a hardened livestock crossing, and providing two water troughs as an alternative water source.
Trout Unlimited and Orvis will give out cash prizes to chapters with the most unique donations, the most money raised, the most $10 donations, the most $25 donations and even to 28 randomly selected donations! That means that your donation could be the one to win us an extra $100, $250, $1,000 or more!
