Only a few days left to 'Give Where You Fish'

There’s only a few days left to “Give Where You Fish” and support 29 local Trout Unlimited projects across the country.

The Embrace A Stream Challenge, a fun, week-long online competition, has already raised more than $50,00

0 for these great projects and your donation – whether $10 or $100 – can help improve a river you love!

What’s more, Orvis and TU have partnered to create a $50,000 prize pool and every donation you make can unlock prizes ranging from $50 to $1,000 for your favorite projects.

Donations close at midnight on Nov. 12, so don’t wait. Go to now and give $10 and tell 10 friends and fishing buddies to “Give Where You Fish.”

Since 1975, TU’s Embrace A Stream program has awarded more than $4.7 million in grants to over 1,100 local chapter projects that bring TU’s mission to the local level.
