It will employ science, outreach, and organizing to engage a wide array of stakeholders—including ranchers, business people, and state and federal decision makers—in protecting western river ecosystems and the habitat needed to support them.

for support of the Western Water and Public Lands programs  
This renewal grant to Trout Unlimited supports its advocacy, science, outreach, and organizing efforts to protect western river ecosystems and the habitat necessary to support them. It supports the goal of the organization’s new CEO, Chris Wood, to unite its separate land and water protection programs in order to be more focused and effective. Specifically, Trout Unlimited would work to protect and restore 800 miles of rivers in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming; protect 20 million acres of roadless land and other important habitat West-wide; and secure a decision from the Environmental Protection Agency protecting Alaska’s Bristol Bay and its salmon fisheries from a proposed mine at its headwaters.
