Story of Fund
The Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited came into existence on February 1st, 1973 when their bylaws were adopted at a meeting held at the Panorama Grade School in Boalsburg.
The Spring Creek Chapter had six founding members and was created at a time when Spring Creek was in quite a precarious condition. Almost all insect life had been wiped by toxic chemical levels in the early 1970s. Additionally a building boom in the watershed led to a major siltation problem.
Although the problems went unnoticed by many, as the stream was frequently fished and stocked, the creek was in dire straights. Over the years the chapter has taken on several large projects such as the restoration of Thompson Run, the removal of McCoy Dam, and continued stream clean-up in order to conserve, protect, and restore Spring Creek.
