Orvis Supports Teton Creek Restoration
In March and April, Orvis patrons can contribute to the project via a "Round Up for Conservation" campaign, featured on the Orvis website at www.orvis.com. Internet shoppers can choose to "round up" their Orvis purchase price to the next dollar, with the difference going directly to the Teton Creek Restoration Project.
"We're excited that a locally important spawning tributary for our native Yellowstone cutthroat trout is receiving national exposure and is a priority for a company as recognized as Orvis," stated FTR Development Director, Anna Lindstedt. She also noted that numerous stressors have contributed to the diminishing populations of Yellowstone cutthroat trout (YCT) in the region, including habitat degradation, nonnative competition, hybridization, and tributary dewatering.
