Idaho Falls, ID – Trout Unlimited (TU) has hired an Idaho native and experienced land resource expert to head up its Idaho Western Water Office.
Kim Goodman, who was raised in eastern Idaho, will serve as the director of TU’s Idaho Water Project. The Project works cooperatively with landowners and state and federal resource agencies to protect and restore trout, salmon and steelhead habitat in the state.
