Coldwater Conservation Fund
The Coldwater Conservation Fund, or "CCF," was founded over 20 years ago to support Trout Unlimited's effort to keep every aspect of its conservation work grounded in science. From abandoned mine cleanup in Appalachia to native trout restoration projects in the Sierra Nevada, the CCF supports virtually everything that TU does for trout and salmon. CCF members give $1,000 or more each year to ensure that TU's work has the means to continue and expand. CCF contributions have a long history of leveraging public investment and volunteer work so that TU can develop smaller projects, such as the restoration of Pennsylvania's Kettle Creek or Wisconsin's Kickapoo River, into watershed and landscape-scale initiatives.
To see the full scope of CCF supported work, please take a look at the 2013 project list and note the tremendous impact that the CCF has for trout, salmon, and the places and the clean water in which they live.
Trout Unlimited designs unique trips and events so that the CCF community has the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their generosity. Benefits include:
