5 Rivers College Outreach Program

Part of Trout Unlimited’s expanding Youth Education efforts, 5 Rivers promotes TU’s mission on college and university campuses around the country.

Tomorrow’s conservation leaders are currently enrolled and on their way to becoming scientists, policymakers, volunteers, and anglers who will become the Trout Unlimited of the future. In order to sustain the success of its current protection and restoration of the country’s coldwater resources, TU must not only share this work with college students but give them the tools and encouragement necessary to create a new generation of conservationists.

Are you a chapter member who would like to assist with the UCCTU 5 Rivers Program here with our local colleges and universities? If so, please contact our Education Chair at education@ucctu.org.

Are you a student who would like to join or start a 5 Rivers program in Georgia?
