Fish Counting

Written by

Several times a year Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited provides volunteers to assist with surveys of Salmon and Steelhead in the watersheds of our territory. This enjoyable and educational activity is simply a walk along (and sometimes in) a creek or river while making a few notes, and its a perfect outing for ages 12 and up*.
The form below can be used at any time of the year to let us know you’d like to help.

When most people think of salmon and steelhead, they think of the big roiling rivers of the west coast: the Sacramento, the American, the Klamath & Trinity, the Columbia. While it's true salmon first appear in those rivers as they return from the ocean, where many of them are actually headed is to the little creeks and ravines that run right through our backyards.

Record TU Volunteer Hours

Written by

Volunteer Hours

Thank you for volunteering with Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited.

This form has been created to help keep track of the hours our volunteers put in and to organize them better.  Please fill in the fields below and click the submit button.

If you have questions regarding what category to place your hours under, see the description below the form.

Please enter the number of hours worked in the fields under Conservation or Sustain Hours.

Conservation Hours

Trout Unlimited’s mission is defined by our watershed-based approach to conservation. We recognize that in order to improve water quality and protect native and wild trout populations we must protect the best remaining places – most often in small headwater tributaries, reconnect streams that have been disconnected by dams, culverts and other barriers and restore downstream areas which have been degraded by development, agriculture or other human or natural processes.

Sustain Hours 

Trout Unlimited sustains our work by building volunteer capacity to execute projects that support the conservation plan, informing TU members and the community at large on the importance of coldwater conservation, investing in youth to ensure the perpetuation of TU’s mission through future generations, gathering information and data to advise our work and raising funds to support all aspects of our work.

How to Count A TU Volunteer Hour
Trout Unlimited’s strategic plan outlines four major areas of our mission: Protect, Reconnect, Restore and Sustain. Your chapter or council’s activities and volunteer hours will fall within these four categories. The following glossary helps define each of these categories and sub-categories and also provides examples of the types of volunteer hours which should be counted in each category.
