The annual TVTU collection project where used Christmas trees are collected and turned into fish habitat is returning for 2018!! 
Gather up that tree from the living room and coerce your neighbor into giving up his; bring $10 per tree and turn them into something good!
No flocked trees accepted; no tinsel or ornaments on your trees.

As of 12.14.17 we could us a few more hands – why not help out? “Shifts’ are usually about 4-hours though if you want to hang for the entire collection day you are certainly welcome to. Side benefit is that both our collection spots are next to our favorite fly shops – you can step inside and visit during the day! No sales pitches or anything else that really needs to happen – receive and stack trees, take and record some basic information and the collection fee. Plus, you get to gather and gab with fellow TU’ers…’s not all that difficult but the rewards are many! Please sign up with MIKE GENTRY today.


WHEN: Saturday, January 6 & 13, 2018
WHAT: CHRISTMAS for COHO Tree Collection
WHAT TIME: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
WHAT to EXPECT: This is our yearly conservation project – the one that starts it all for us here at TVTU! Two weekends in the new year gather with a few of your fellow TVTU Chapter members to collect gently used Christmas trees from the public. We have two collection sites in the metro area where we gather trees and stage them for removal to project sites.
Low key effort – basically meet and greet the public, take their trees, collect the fee, and place the tree on the pile to go to the Clackamas River. Each location is adjacent to our favorite fly shops in town so you can venture into the shop to warm up and browse.
We can use your help! Sign up for one of the shifts today!
