  1. Montana's Smith River
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/montanas-smith-river

    Loved by anglers, floaters and families alike, the Smith River might be one of Montana's most iconic rivers.

    In short, Sheep Creek is the wrong place to put a copper mine. Trout Unlimited and our partners seek to protect both Sheep Creek and the Smith from potential impacts hard rock mining inherently brings.
  2. Eastern Shale Gas Monitoring Program
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/eastern-shale-gas-monitoring-program

    Goals

    Central Appalachia’s coldwater streams are still struggling from century-old impacts from past energy development. This, coupled with urbanization and other land management issues, has left us with few intact and healthy wild and native trout watersheds.

  3. Colorado Abandoned Mine Restoration
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/colorado-abandoned-mine-restoration

    Goals

    Abandoned mines and their toxic legacies are among the most widespread, but least addressed, threats to native and wild trout. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that they impact over 40% of headwater streams in the West.

  4. Yankee Fork Side Channel Habitat Improvement
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/yankee-fork-side-channel-habitat-improvement

    Goals

    TU's goal in the Yankee Fork basin was to create side-channel rearing habitat for juvenile Chinook salmon and steelhead trout and spawning habitat for adult steelhead.  Improved habitat will also benefit cutthroat trout and bull trout.

  5. Blackfoot River, Idaho Home Rivers Initiative
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/blackfoot-river-idaho-home-rivers-initiative

    Goals

    The Blackfoot River in Idaho is located in what is known as the Southeast Idaho phosphate patch, where  there are several active and non-active phosphate mines within the Blackfoot Watershed.

  6. Upper Clark Fork Restoration Project
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/upper-clark-fork-restoration-project

    Goals

    Trout Unlimited has embarked on an ambitious effort to implement large-scale habitat and flow restoration in critical spawning and rearing tributaries throughout the Upper Clark Fork.

  7. Eastern Shale Gas Development
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/eastern-shale-gas-development

    Goals

    Shale gas development in the East has taken on new dimensions in recent years, where energy companies are drilling for gas in the Marcellus and Utica shales.

  8. Roan Plateau
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/roan-plateau

    Goals

    Western Colorado’s Roan Plateau is one of the region’s great landscapes and a haven for fish, wildlife and sportsmen. It is also an important part of the area’s economy thanks largely to the hunting, fishing and recreation the Roan Plateau sustains.

  9. Thompson Divide
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/thompson-divide

    Goals

    With robust populations of cutthroats, brown and rainbow trout, and legendary populations of big game, the Thompson Divide is a place worth protecting. Unfortunately, it is also a place under threat from energy development.

  10. Eastern Abandoned Mines Program
    http://www.tu.org/tu-projects/eastern-abandoned-mines-program

    Goals

    The Environmental Protection Agency cites abandoned mine drainage as the single largest threat to the Appalachian region.
