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.
