TREES FOR TROUT 'ECO-CYCLE' YOUR XMAS TREE JANUARY 14 FROM 9AM-4PM MERWIN MEADOWS PARK, WILTON
Each year, the Mianus Chapter 'eco-cycles' Christmas trees and turns them into important habitat for wild trout in the Norwalk and Mianus rivers. Help support this effort by dropping off your tree at Merwin Meadows Park in Wilton on Saturday, Jan. 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tree drop-off is free.
Your tree will join hundreds of others in helping stabilize stream banks, reduce erosion and create refuge habitat for juvenile trout and other aquatic life.
No synthetic trees or trees with tinsel or flocking please
LOCAL RIVER RESTORATION PROJECTS Since 1973, the Mianus Chapter has been restoring local rivers and improving habitat for trout and other aquatic life.
In recent years, work has focused on the Norwalk River, where the chapter has protected a spawning wild brown trout population, and on the Mianus River, where work on our namesake stream continues to enhance the fishing and improve the river.
MIANUS CHAPTER GEAR Fish the local rivers in style and proclaim your support for local river restoration with new Mianus Chapter gear.
Fishing caps available in Navy, Green, Khaki, Black and Red feature the chapter logo on the front and the words "Coldwater Conservation" on the back. Light-weight fishing shirts, available in White, Light Blue and Green, are perfect for a day on the stream.
