Tour TU's Driftless projects on Oct. 16

Save the Date: Tuesday, October 16, for the 2018 Driftless Projects Tour.

We’ll spend a lovely autumn day on a comfortable charter bus touring a major multiyear Driftless Watershed project and a smaller stream with some unique characteristics.

If you’ve fished the last day of trout season October 15 (except in Iowa), you can ease into the off season with a day viewing innovative habitat projects with others similarly afflicted. PLUS, you’ll get to talk with project designers, equipment operators, biologists and anglers as you tour.

Mark your calendar and stay tuned to the TUDARE Facebook page for more information in coming days, including how to reserve a seat on the always popular tour.
