  1. Suction Dredge Mining Reform in Washington State
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/suction-dredge-mining-reform-in-washington-state

    TU is working hard to address a serious problem impacting Washington’s watersheds and threatening the health of our native fish populations: unregulated suction dredge mining and other forms of motorized mineral prospecting.

    All streams in Washington are currently open to suction dredging, including designated Critical Habitat for threatened and endangered salmon, steelhead, and bull trout. The “Gold and Fish” regulations fail to protect our native fish.
  2. Montana's Smith River

    Loved by anglers, floaters and families alike, the Smith River might be one of Montana's most iconic rivers.

    In short, Sheep Creek is the wrong place to put a copper mine. Trout Unlimited and our partners seek to protect both Sheep Creek and the Smith from potential impacts hard rock mining inherently brings.
  3. 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.

  4. Colorado Abandoned Mine Restoration
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/colorado-abandoned-mine-restoration

    Goals

    Abandoned mines and their toxic legacies are among the most widespread, but least addressed, threats to native and wild trout. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that they impact over 40% of headwater streams in the West.

  5. Yankee Fork Side Channel Habitat Improvement
    https://www.tu.org/http%3A//arcg.is/2zdroF1

    Goals

    TU's goal in the Yankee Fork basin was to create side-channel rearing habitat for juvenile Chinook salmon and steelhead trout and spawning habitat for adult steelhead.  Improved habitat will also benefit cutthroat trout and bull trout.

  6. Blackfoot River, Idaho Home Rivers Initiative
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/blackfoot-river-idaho-home-rivers-initiative

    Goals

    The Blackfoot River in Idaho is located in what is known as the Southeast Idaho phosphate patch, where  there are several active and non-active phosphate mines within the Blackfoot Watershed.

  7. Upper Clark Fork Restoration Project
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/upper-clark-fork-restoration-project

    Goals

    Trout Unlimited has embarked on an ambitious effort to implement large-scale habitat and flow restoration in critical spawning and rearing tributaries throughout the Upper Clark Fork.

  8. Eastern Shale Gas Development
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/eastern-shale-gas-development

    Goals

    Shale gas development in the East has taken on new dimensions in recent years, where energy companies are drilling for gas in the Marcellus and Utica shales.

  9. Roan Plateau
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/roan-plateau

    Goals

    Western Colorado’s Roan Plateau is one of the region’s great landscapes and a haven for fish, wildlife and sportsmen. It is also an important part of the area’s economy thanks largely to the hunting, fishing and recreation the Roan Plateau sustains.

  10. Thompson Divide
    https://www.tu.org/tu-projects/thompson-divide

    Goals

    With robust populations of cutthroats, brown and rainbow trout, and legendary populations of big game, the Thompson Divide is a place worth protecting. Unfortunately, it is also a place under threat from energy development.
