Trout and climate: Hear NPR's story featuring TU

 

National Public Radio this morning had a great segment on the importance of trout and fly-fishing to Montana--and how that natural heritage is threatened by climate change. The piece focuses on solutions, though--and highlights an innovative partnership between TU and rancher Randy Mannix to restore several tributary streams that serve as nurseries for trout on the Blackfoot River.

Listen to the NPR segment here.

Also check out TU's short video about the Mannix Ranch partnership that gives more detail about the project and how TU is partnering with ranchers in Montana and throughout the West to make streams and rivers more resilient to the impacts of drought, climate change and fires. TU is having a huge impact where it counts--on the ground.
