Conservation should be a true partnership between landowners, agencies, municipalities, and all stakeholders. We protect critical habitat, reconnect degraded waterways, and restore populations to coldwater fisheries. We use sound science to inform our priorities, using critical data on the health of these fisheries to guide our conservation efforts.

Fisheries management

Our ‘whole watershed’ vision of conservation guides our approach.  TU advocates on behalf of cold, clean water and responsible fisheries management on the national, regional and local levels.

Land management and development

There are two requirements for quality hunting and fishing opportunities: healthy habitat and access. We believe responsible land management can provide for both, but it doesn’t happen by accident.

Watershed restoration

Whether it’s cleaning up water pollution from abandoned mines, reducing farm runoff, retaining stormwater, stabilizing and revegetating streambanks, or enhancing instream habitat, TU is applying myriad strategies to address watershed impairments to improve fish habitat and water quality.

Water management

We have established the critical link between work on-the-ground and policy change, and it all started with the common ground that there is a way to make healthy rivers, fisheries, and wildlife benefit working landscapes, water users, and western communities.  What sets TU apart is that we work to build this common ground through local, state, regional, and federal levels.
