Protecting Our Rivers, Colorado Petition Worth Checking Out
ABOUT THE PROTECT OUR RIVERS LICENSE PLATE
We need your Support for an important cause in Colorado. Colorado Trout Unlimited, with volunteer help from Niby Design Group, developed the Protect Our Rivers license plate (pictured above) to help raise a minimum of $75,000 for river protection right here in Colorado.
But this plate will not be produced until we collect 3,000 signatures from all our members and friends. Our deadline is November 30th, 2010 and we need you to help us meet our goal!
Anything Trout Unlimited National, Colorado Trout Unlimited or Denver Trout Unlimited related I'm always open ears. I was lucky to serve as Activities Director with the Denver Trout Unlimited for a number of years so anything I can do to promote or assist, I'm game. Please take the time to read this and pass along if you get a chance...a big thanks!
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
During the 2011 legislative session, Colorado Trout Unlimited will introduce a bill to create the Protect Our Rivers license plate. In order to introduce the bill we need 3,000 signatures by the end of November.
Once the bill is passed, you can obtain a Protect Our River s license plate by making a one-time, tax-deductible donation of $25 to Colorado Trout Unlimited. This money will be used to help CTU fulfill its mission of protecting, conserving and restoring Colorado's rivers by funding on-the-ground restoration projects, youth conservation education programs, and river advocacy. The money will remain 100% local, all funds will be allocated to projects and programs within Colorado.
