Trout Unlimited is bringing on a full-time Grassroots Organizer to assist and develop the volunteer TU chapters in California. The primary geographic focus will be 5 TU chapters located in the central Sierra Nevada region, with some responsibilities extending statewide. The Grassroots Organizer will educate, outreach and mobilize our membership and other conservation partners in the Sierra region and plan, design and execute on-the-ground restoration and monitoring projects that enhance habitat for wild and native trout. The position is offered through the Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership.
Interested parties should contact Dave Lass (530-587-7110) or John Sikora. (916-502-2433)

After several years of coordination with Sonoma County agencies and businesses, the first Annual Wild Steelhead Festival is being conducted February 8–10, 2008 to bring public awareness to this threatened species. Help support our sister chapter by attending, and learn of the efforts being made to enhance their natural habitat through many fun and educational events during the three days.

Thank you to the TU members who responded to the call for help to rescue fish from the poorly planned drainage of Prospect Island. The massive fish kill was very unfortunate and unnecessary but, as sometimes happens in various aspects of our lives, we learn from our mistakes. The agencies involved will undoubtedly be more careful in the future, and hopefully will not delay in accepting volunteer assistance as soon as it is offered and needed.
For almost 50 years Trout Unlimited and Orvis have worked together to protect trout habitat. Now you can support both groups by shopping Orvis' Trout Unlimited Collections. Not only will you get high-quality TU logo merchandise, but Orvis will donate a portion of your purchase back to TU. The collection contains great functional and casual wear such as fishing shirts, polos, hats and fishing vests. And it doesn't stop there - when you shop through this link, Orvis will extend that donation to all the items you buy from their entire site. So what are you waiting for?
