Default Re: TU Members

I'm a member of the TU Madison County New York Chapter 680. I found that regardless of what the National TU has done, our local chapter is instrumental in conservation and stream preservation in our area. We are heavily involved with stream improvements on our local waters. A few years ago we were able to get the DEC to establish about a 5 mile or so stretch of the creek as "catch and release". We support "Trout in the Classroom" and work with wounded veterans, through "Project Healing Waters". Through the chapter I have met a lot of great people who I can hang with and have a good time. So while I may not agree with everything National TU does, the grassroots efforts make it worthwhile in my book. Oh, and I only do the $35 a year dues.
