TU’s goal is to conserve, protect, and restore brook trout throughout their native range. Within each state volunteers are:
- Contacting elected officials in order to improve air and water quality, and reduce emissions that cause acid rain;
- Developing education programs to teach youth about the importance of clean water, clean air, and healthy watersheds;
- Conducting conservation projects to improve water quality and fish habitat, and to restore brook trout to their native streams.
TU is a partner in the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture (EBTJV); the nation’s first pilot project under the National Fish Habitat Initiative, which directs locally-driven efforts that build private and public partnerships to improve fish habitat. The long-term goals of the EBTJV are to develop a comprehensive restoration and education strategy to improve aquatic habitat, to raise education awareness, and to raise federal, state and local funds for brook trout conservation.
