Conservation Planning

July 29, 2015

Hi!  My name is Bob Bernard and I am the Conservation Chair for Trout Unlimited North Bear.  I would like to take a moment to share with our readers and members some of the current conservation planning with which I am working.


1) Planting trees to help keep streams cool and reduce erosion while absorbing air carbon emissions.  We are trying to find a partner and location where we can do this.  Our focus streams would be those stated in our Strategic Plant (i.e. North Bear, South Bear, and Waterloo).  We would apply for a grant from Trees Forever to help provide for this project.


2) Embrace-A-Stream grant development is currently underway.  This grant is through the national Trout Unlimited and I am working on developing a goal, location, purpose, and partner for a future project.


3) TU North Bear is currently implementing our Embrace-A-Stream grant for Japanese Knotweed eradication.  The North Bear Chapter is providing a match of cash and in-kind.  The TU Iowa Council has also donated $1,000 towards equipment and supply purchases.
