Trout Unlimited, a national organization of over 140,000 members, is dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring North America's coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.
It is TU's vision to ensure that robust populations of native and wild coldwater fish once again thrive within their North American range, so that our children can enjoy healthy fisheries in their home waters.
Truchas Chapter, based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has over 500 members. We work to carry out TU's vision in the waters of northern New Mexico through our conservation projects and youth programs, through our fund-raising efforts, and through our communications and advocacy efforts.
Through our conservation projects, the Chapter seeks to secure the remaining populations of native Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout and to restore that trout to more of its historical waters. Truchas Chapter also seeks to improve the condition of the watersheds in northern New Mexico through habitat improvement projects, river clean-ups, and advocacy.
Through our youth programs, the Chapter seeks to instill knowledge about and a strong connection with our rivers and the wildlife that inhabits them, so future generations will desire to protect these rivers and their wildlife.
Truchas Chapter forms partnerships wherever possible with state and federal wildlife and public lands agencies, with schools, and with non-governmental organizations.
The Chapter carries out its work entirely with volunteers. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, and contributions to Truchas Chapter are tax-deductible.
