World Trout Grant Recipients – 2010

S.A.R.E.P. (Sportfishing & Aquatic Resource Educational Program)
The S.A.R.E.P. Youth Flyfishing Program provides experiences related to aquatic resources, conservation ethics and fly fishing, in hopes of protecting native fish species and their habitat. We made this grant to support its youth programs.

Native Fish Society
The Native Fish Society works to protect and restore native, wild fish in the Pacific Northwest. We funded its enhanced and expanded River Stewardship Program, which trains river stewards to monitor and restore rivers in the Pacific Northwest.

Androscoggin River Alliance
Androscoggin River Alliance works with other organizations and governments for a healthy Androscoggin River, good jobs and strong communities. We made this grant to support its efforts to modify existing fish passages on the Androscoggin for American shad.

The Quivira Coalition
The Quivira Coalition seeks to build resilience by fostering ecological, economic and social health on western landscapes through education, innovation, collaboration and progressive public and private land stewardship. We made this grant to support its restoration project for Rio Grande cutthroat trout within the Comanche Creek watershed in New Mexico’s Carson National Forest.

Wild Steelhead Coalition
Wild Steelhead Coalition is dedicated to increasing the return of wild steelhead to the waters and rivers of the Pacific Northwest. We supported its project to correct misinformation about historic salmon runs in the Columbia River basin, on which current recovery plans are based.
