Native Trout Workgroup

The Native Trout Workgroup exists to facilitate grassroots implementation of Trout Unlimited’s National Conservation Agenda related to protecting our cold water native salmonid species. Scope of the work group activity is nationwide. The work group facilitates education, awareness, restoration and science projects related to native salmonid species. The work group provides information related to native species through a web page on TU’s website and serves as an advocate for Councils and Chapters on issues related to native species”
