Embrace A Stream

Cold, clean, fishable water doesn’t come easy. It takes the right mix of headwater habitat protection, stream reconnection and the restoration of degraded areas for native and wild trout to thrive. And it takes all of us to embrace a stream.

Embrace A Stream by donating today!

Embrace A Stream is a matching grant program administered by Trout Unlimited that invests in grassroots coldwater fisheries conservation and restoration through TU chapters and councils nationwide.

Since its inception in 1975, Embrace A Stream has funded more than 1,100 individual projects with more than $4.75 million in direct cash grants. Each year, over $100,000 in grants is awarded to more than two dozen projects restoring streams, engaging communities and educating youth from coast-to-coast.

Local TU chapters and councils contributed an additional $14 million in cash and in-kind services to Embrace A Stream funded projects, for a total investment of nearly $19 million.
