In Partnership with Trout Unlimited (TU)
Sawyer is excited to partner with Trout Unlimited to support fisheries and fish habitat. A portion of every Trout Unlimited paddle and oar sale is donated to the campaign.
Sawyer continues our dedication and partnership to Trout Unlimited with the addition of paddles and oars for the professional and recreational paddling community. The TU Embrace A Stream (EAS) is a matching grant program administered by TU that awards funds to TU chapters and councils for cold water fisheries conservation. Since its inception in 1975, EAS has funded more than 1,080 individual projects with more than $4.75 million in direct cash grants. Local TU chapters and councils contributed an additional $14 million in cash and in-kind services to EAS funded projects, for a total investment of nearly $19 million.
In 2018, a total of $123,000 was awarded to 29 chapters and councils, helping restore stream habitat, improving fish passage, and protecting water quality in 19 different states from coast to coast.
Our goal is to fund up to $5,000 in Embrace A Stream grants in partnership with TU with 5% of every Trout Unlimited paddle and oar sale donated to the Embrace A Stream program.
