The Sac-Sierra Chapter (in partnership with the Upper American River Foundation, U.S. Forest Service, Auburn State Recreation Area, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and Wildways Illustrated) just completed a project to raise awareness of the California Wild Trout and National Wild and Scenic River classifications of 2 rivers in their region.
These two interpretive panels combine art and science to raise awareness of visitors to the North Fork of the American River at Mineral Bar (Iowa Hill Bridge) near Colfax, CA and visitors to the Rubicon River tributary to the Middle Fork American River near Foresthill, CA. They will benefit wild trout and many groups, agencies and individuals by increasing awareness of the Federal Wild & Scenic River Classifications and the California Wild Trout Stream listings. "Our project is already being looked at by others throughout the Sierra Nevada's who want to bring attention to these two very important designations for their wild trout streams and wild and scenic rivers!", according to Bill Templin, the chapter's lead on this project and one of this reborn chapters' charter Board Members.
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)
