Georgia's Hemlocks

Hello hemlock friends in Murray County and chapters of Trout Unlimited,

I want to let you know about an ambitious project on March 2 that I 
hope you'll be interested in.  In a joint effort of Save Georgia's 
Hemlocks, Trout Unlimited, the Nature Conservancy, and the U. S. 
Forest Service, we will be planting 60 large hemlocks on Mill Creek in 
Murray County to restore the shade canopy along the trout stream, and 
we need all the help we can get.

Please see the attached flyer and share it with your friends, work 
associates, your group members, and anyone else you think might be 
interested.  I hope you can come out and help; it will be a fun and 
very rewarding day!  If you can, please contact Chris Disser to 
register as shown on the flyer, and she'll send you a confirmation 
with additional details.

Cheers, and hope to see you on March 2!

Donna Shearer
Chairman, Save Georgia's Hemlocks

Foothills JANUARY monthly meeting this Thursday, January 10th

Foothills JANUARY monthly meeting Thursday, 1/10, at the United Community Bank in Clarkesville.
    468 W Louise St
    Clarkesville, GA 30523

The social time is around 6:00 - 6:30 with the program starting at 7:00

We have lots of "Dream Trip" tickets for sale... pick up some to sell and/or purchase yours. Don't miss out on a chance for a trip of a life time.

Our guest speaker for the January meeting of Foothills will be Steven Patrick. Steven, as many of you know, is the Extension Agent for Habersham County. But beyond his responsibilities there, Steven has a passion for introducing kids to fishing. He is the founder of the Southeastern Youth Kayak Fishing Club. Foothills TU has always been a strong advocate for youth education and angling so Steven's interests fit well with our mission. Join us Thursday evening for an update on Steven's projects which also include the Upper Chattahoochee Shoal Bass Project, a genetic tracking study to help build an information base for more protective regulations for this special species.
