Looking to learn?  Looking to help your community?  Looking to introduce a young person to the outdoors?  Here is an easy opportunity to do those things and more. The mission of Trout Unlimited is to protect, reconnect, restore, and sustain our coldwater resources. All of our local chapter conservation projects are aligned with this mission.

Since its founding in 1985, our chapter has spearheaded and been involved in many projects in Dickinson, Marquette, Iron and Alger Counties. As in the past and especially now as we have expanded the chapter to include all of the eastern Upper Michigan counties, it will be our volunteers who will plan, organize and execute these projects with our many partners. Whether it is just bringing your advice through your experience with your favorite waters or helping where manual labor is needed, you will find your contribution to our varied projects satisfying and certainly appreciated.

You can contact any of our directors to learn what current projects we have, suggest new ones or to offer your assistance where it matches your interests and available time. We regularly have five to 20 volunteers participating in each project, sometimes more; so you won’t be alone or burdened with too many responsibilities.

From “boots in the water” projects to helping to educate the next generation of outdoor conservationists, you will find plenty of opportunities to learn, meet great people and have fun, all the while helping your local community. Check out information about our current projects elsewhere on our website. Please seriously consider getting involved…and invite a friend along including their children
