The Winona County Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce the selection of the Win-Cres Chapter of Trout Unlimited as the 2012 Outstanding Conservationist in Winona County. Win-Cres will be honored at the annual meeting of the Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Dec. 2-4 in Minneapolis. Each year, the state's SWCDs recognize individuals and organizations for outstanding accomplishments in implementing conservation practices and improving Minnesota's natural resources. The award program is conducted with support from The Farmer magazine, and the award ceremony receives sponsorship from the Minnesota Corn Growers Association.

Whether it is on their own, working with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, or working with the Winona County Soil and Water Conservation District and Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Win-Cres Chapter of Trout Unlimited has been instrumental in improving the stream habitat of Big Trout Creek, Pine Creek, Rush Creek, Garvin Brook, and Trout Run Creeks. Members use their work as a chance to showcase the importance of education in the life of a stream through events such as the Veterans Family Picnic and Fly-fishing Extravaganza, high school clean-up days along the stream, kids fishing events at the Whitewater State Park, and invasive removal days.
