  2. Great Lakes Advocacy
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/great-lakes-advocacy

    Goals:

    The Great Lakes are threatened by invasive species, pollution, and emerging commercial aquaculture proposals, creating a need for state and federal policies that protect the Great Lakes and sustained public funding for Great Lakes restoration efforts.

  3. Salter Brook Trout

    Salter brook trout are a unique species that once was the focus of some of our nation’s earliest trout fishing aficionados. But development pressures and habitat fragmentation caused by dams and culverts pose a risk to salter brook trout across the northeast.

    Goals:

    With more than 20 percent of the Earth’s available freshwater flowing through its rivers, streams and lakes, the Great Lakes basin is an unparalleled natural resource.

  6. Eastern Shale Gas Monitoring Program
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/eastern-shale-gas-monitoring-program

    Goals

    Central Appalachia’s coldwater streams are still struggling from century-old impacts from past energy development. This, coupled with urbanization and other land management issues, has left us with few intact and healthy wild and native trout watersheds.

  7. Brook trout habitat restoration in the Potomac Headwaters
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/brook-trout-habitat-restoration-in-the-potomac-headwaters

    Goals

    The Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia is drained by a portion of the mighty Potomac River, and has abundant trout resources. The region is graced with karst, limestone geology that provides streams with cold, buffered spring water.

  8. Eastside Road Floodplain Restoration Project, White Mountain National Forest
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/eastside-road-floodplain-restoration-project-white-mountain-national-forest

    Goals

    The White Mountain National Forest, a popular New England vacation destination, is home to hundreds of miles of hiking trails spanning over 4,000-foot mountaintops, 1,250 square miles of wilderness and 600 miles of rivers and streams.

  9. Clark Brook, Oliverian Brook and Eastman Brook, New Hampshire
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/clark-brook-oliverian-brook-and-eastman-brook-new-hampshire

    Goals

    No matter how clean and cold the water is for brook trout, a bountiful population cannot occur without a significant amount of uninterrupted stream mileage to allow the fish to move throughout the length of stream.

  10. Penobscot River Restoration

    Goals

    After more than a decade of collaboration among the hydropower company that owned the river's dams, state and federal officials, conservation groups and the Penobscot Indian Nation, the Great Works Dam and the Veazie Dam, have been removed. A bypass around the Howland Dam is under way.
