“This information surprised me in some ways. Hearing apocalyptic news seems to happen so often these days, it can be hard to believe, accept, and somehow integrate such information into one’s mind, heart, and daily existence. But more than that, some of the examples given in the article did not necessarily describe what I have seen in my career.”
“My hope is the information I gather can be useful to Trout Unlimited as they continue their conservation efforts, especially regarding climate change. I might even get to meet up with TU staff and volunteers along the trail to learn about what’s happening in their different projects. I look forward to reporting in on what I’m learning about the trout and all the water sheds I encounter on the CDT.”
Last year the workgroup developed a new volunteer council role, Council Climate Change Coordinator. Communicating a consistent TU science-based message on climate change, whether it’s raising awareness or advocating a Trout Unlimited position, is the primary responsibility of this role.
