State of TU Address....

"Conservation isn't the telling of what's been or could be lost. It is the faith in, and work toward, what has yet to be won," Wood told members in the State of TU address. "The work that you do in your local communities is a demonstration of your commitment to the values that drive this organization."

The State of TU presentation from Trout Unlimited President and CEO Chris Wood to members at TU's annual meeting in New Mexico shows TU had a big year in 2014, and its members and volunteers continued to play a vital role in the success of the national organization.

The presentation highlights numerous projects and campaigns all over America, ranging from Klamath River water conservation efforts in California, to the protection and restoration of the Chesapeake Bay headwaters in West Virginia. It also emphasizes the diversity of TU's work, the value of good, collaborative stewardship and the successes the organization has enjoyed continually, thanks largely to volunteers who support national work, as well as the projects that make fishing better in their own backyards.
