for support of the Western Water and Public Lands programs
This renewal grant would support Trout Unlimited’s efforts to protect, reconnect, and restore western rivers and streams and the lands necessary to sustain them. 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. The organization’s goals for this grant period include improving 1,900 river miles in sixteen western river basins for native and sport fisheries and protecting 32 million acres of public lands in eight western states.
