Join Trout Unlimited members, supporters and friends for a weekend unlike any other as we celebrate conservation, community, fishing and fun in Portland, Maine from July 20-24!

We’re thrilled to be getting back together in person for the first time in two years and will be pulling out all the stops on an event you won’t want to miss!

CX3 Portland: Community. Coldwater. Conservation is a celebration of our shared commitment to our lakes, rivers and streams and our approach to building an entire community around our mission.

It will be a week full of fun, family-friendly hands-on activities and nearly endless opportunities to connect with people from across the country who share your passion for cold, clean rivers and streams and the trout and salmon that live in them.

From seeking striped bass at sunrise along the shores of Casco Bay to scouring the banks of the Back Cove to clean up trash and enjoy sweeping views of this city by the sea, you’ll find countless ways to play and to make a meaningful impact. We’ll have staff, volunteers and partners on hand all week and weekend leading excursions to great conservation project sites, fun fresh and saltwater adventures and unique experiences that only TU can bring to life!

Special activities and environmental education experiences for kids and families will be front and center – so plan your family’s summer vacation around this great destination weekend.

Katie & Kat take Portland by storm, exploring all the ins-outs and secret places you and your family will find when you join us this summer! Take a quick tour of this city by the bay with them to begin day dreaming about all the adventures your family will have this July.
Our event in Portland is the perfect opportunity to support the conservation mission of TU while connecting with our passionate community of volunteers and supporters. If your company is interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor, contact us.
