About The Forbes Trail Chapter
The Forbes Trail Chapter of Trout Unlimited was founded in 1973 bringing cold water conservation to Westmoreland County Pennsylvania. FTTU has been involved with stream restoration since the early 1970’s after a highway by-pass construction project and Hurricane Agnes devastated Loyalhanna Creek. In the early 1980’s Forbes Trail in partnership with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and the Loyalhanna Watershed Association, began an aggressive stream improvement project on the Delayed Harvest section of Loyalhanna Creek. Over the course of two decades, our chapter constructed approximately fifteen fish habitat devices, stabilized over 300 yards of stream bank and positioned over 600 tons of stone. FTTU was awarded the Golden Trout Award by TU National for our efforts on Loyalhanna Creek. More recently the chapter has worked in the Linn Run watershed and was named Westmoreland County Conservation Club of the Year in 2003. In addition to our conservation work, FTTU strives to be a positive force in the community through our youth group and partnerships with other area organizations.
