On Jan 8, 2013, Doug Pullan, Secretary of the Central Alberta Chapter of Trout Unlimited Canada, presented donations to Kristine Plastow from Red Deer College Library and Ron Sheppard from Parkland Regional Library.
This is the third year that this chapter has provided funds to purchase books and DVDs that focus on fish, fish habitat and the surrounding riparian areas. The value of this year’s donation was $1500. The books that were approved by the chapter’s executive committee were tailored towards people of all ages as well as college level reference texts. The chapter has received encouraging feedback from the libraries indicating people are more concerned about our water resources and are looking at good stewardship in a different light. The Central Alberta Chapter believes education is an important part of the mission and goals of Trout Unlimited Canada and will continue with further financial contributions to local libraries in the future.
