If your organization or business is interested in supporting the Wild Trout Symposium, please contact Amy Wolfe.
Today TU is a national organization with more than 150,000 volunteers organized into about 400 chapters from Maine to Montana to Alaska. This dedicated grassroots army is matched by a respected staff of lawyers, policy experts and scientists, who work out of more than 30 offices nationwide. These conservation professionals ensure that TU is at the forefront of fisheries restoration work at the local, state and national levels.
Nearly 50 years after its founding, no other conservation organization is as well placed as TU to make a difference for the nation's coldwater fisheries. To learn more about TU's ambitious conservation agenda, please visit the conservation section of our website TU Conservation.
Greg Keeler generously crafted the song "Born to be Wild" for the WT-IX Symposium in 2007, in West Yellowstone, Montana. Professor Keeler teaches English by day at Montana State University-Bozeman and entertains the rest of us with wonderful, irreverent, original songs concerning all things fishing. Take a moment to visit his website for captivating art and prose. Thank you, Dr. Keeler, for sharing your gifts with the Wild Trout Symposium.
Dave Lewis, a lover of nature and visual arts, as well as stellar custom rod maker, spent many an hour capturing the beauty of fish and fishing across the country. The wild trout community lost Dave to cancer in 2008, after a long full life of appreciating the spirituality of wild trout country. His photos grace the WT Symposium web pages and we thank him for the opportunity to experience these extraordinary images and through them, him.
