The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations recognizes the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation and anglers, hunters, trappers and guides who contribute to the Trust, for making a significant financial contribution to support the critical monitoring of Gerrard Rainbow trout, including these daily counts. Without such support, this project would not have been possible.
