Trout Unlimited and Orvis are challenging the fly-fishing community to contribute to local conservation and enhancement through the Embrace-A-Stream program.  The John Muir Chapter of TU has already been awarded $8000 toward projects on Putah Creek.  This grant can be increased dramatically if the project garners local contributions as well.  Small contributions to this challenge will go a long way through competitive matching grants:
 
- Most Unique Donors - $5,000 prize

- Most Money Raised - $2,500 prize

- Most gifts of $25 or Higher - $1,500 prize

- Most gifts of $10 to $24.99 - $1,000 prize

 
Let’s support our local trophy wild trout water and help make it a destination fishery!

We're still up there in second place now but losing some ground... Get everyone you know to contribute $10 to the cause. The more donations from different people really count!

Thank you everyone in the PCT community for your generous contributions as well as Trout Unlimited and Orvis for their matching grants!

The John Muir Chapter's / Putah Creek project was the top of the leaderboard for total contributions + matching grants for large chapters!

The challenge raised a total of $4,445 which will be added to the $8000 Embrace A Stream grant. Fantastic!
