Working locally to improve and protect the cold water resources you care about is our shared passion. Sometimes rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty on a stream improvement project is what is needed. Those projects also need the support of our elected officials to make sure your hard work is protected for future generations. And sometimes your elected officials depend on hearing your voice help to make that happen.
Advocacy is essential to the fabric of our democracy and helps our elected representatives share our passion.
As issues come up, we will reach out for your involvement. A good first step is to know your State elected representatives.
