The Oakbrook Chapter of Trout Unlimited (OBTU) requests your support through our Spring Solicitation earmarked for our 2019-2020 conservation and youth education programs. Your donations are the primary funding for OBTU’s ambitious programs to strengthen the local coldwater fisheries we enjoy.
While your membership dues benefit the national organization, your OBTU donations fund local projects and improve fishing close to home. This year we have some special needs. Historic flooding in the Driftless Area last August destroyed several dams and ruined miles of streams that now need restoration. Michigan’s Dowagiac River 2019 dam removal will need watershed improvement. And, we have more demand than ever for OBTU’s Trout in the Classroom program. See related newsletter articles on our Trout in the Classroom program and the TU Driftless Area Restoration initiative.
A strong Spring Solicitation will enable us to work on all of these projects. With that in mind, all OBTU board members are donating a minimum of $100 each and will raise at least $3,000 in total. Please join in with your donation so we can raise over $8,000. It’s good to be a Trout Unlimited member and it’s great to be an OBTU supporter.
