Through the generous support of the Compleat Angler who has arranged an epic trip to Yellowstone National Park and it's world class rivers and streams, we hope to raise $10,000 for stream restoration efforts on the Mianus River.

The Mianus Chapter of Trout Unlimited is part of a national conservation organization dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring our coldwater fisheries. The Mianus Chapter has over 500 members living in the Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, Norwalk, New Canaan, Ridgefield and Wilton communities.
The chapter membership meets monthly, typically at Waveny Mansion in New Canaan, to cover chapter business and hear from a variety of speakers on a range of topics.
As a conservation organization, the Mianus Chapter is primarily involved in active restoration work on local rivers and streams, but also promotes educational activities, hosts regular fishing outings and works with local and state agencies and regional environmental organizations to plan and implement conservation programs.
