2018 NE Regional Meeting Summary

The Northeast Region Chapters of Trout Unlimited met in December and pledged $45,800 for 2019 projects.  Chapters donating money were Antigo, Green Bay, Marinette, Northwoods, Oconto River, Wild Rivers, and Wolf River. 

The money will be used to improve habitat on several trout streams across northern Wisconsin.  Streams will be brushed to improve fishability, and beaver control will continue.  Two more spring ponds will be dredged and the barrier-free platforms on the South Branch Oconto will be repaired/replaced. 

Many thanks to everyone who raised money and worked on the 2018 projects.  Your dedication is greatly appreciated !
