April General Membership Meeting

Clinton Valley’s next General Membership Meeting will be on April 14th, 2015 from 7-9PM. Come by and join us for the last meeting at Camp Ticonderoga before our 2015 Conservation Season kicks off.  Our speakers for the night will be CVTU Board Member Suzanne Gauvreau speaking about Reeling & Healing and a representative from Oakland University that will be updating us on the progress of the Paint Creek monitoring grant CVTU awarded last year.

It’ll be a great meeting, so come out and be prepared to sign-up for the chapter’s annual Wa Wa Sum outing which takes place May 14th through the 17th.

February General Membership Meeting

On Tuesday, February 10, 2015 the Clinton Valley Chapter will host our annual February General Membership Meeting at Camp Ticonderoga on Rochester Road just south of Square Lake Road.  The meeting will start at 7:00PM and end at 9:00PM.  As always, we encourage our members and guests to come early and order dinner from the outstanding Camp Ticonderoga menu.

Our speaker for the evening will be our new Trout Unlimited National staff member, Jeremy Geist.  Many of you know Jeremy from his time with the Clinton River Watershed Council, however, you may not have known that he is now TU’s new Great Lakes Restoration Project Manager.  Jeremy will be giving a brief overview of his new position and the benefits of having a TU staff member based right here in Michigan.

We will also have a presentation from our CVTU Conservation Chairman, Mark Johnston, on the upcoming 2015 chapter conservation projects and what volunteer opportunities are available for those willing to get their hands a bit dirty this season.

Don’t forget that this is the last chapter meeting to take advantage of the early bird pricing on your 2015 CVTU Banquet for Conservation tickets.

So come out and join us for a great night at Camp Ticonderoga!
