Announcing the Snake River Headwaters Home Rivers Initiative!

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Snake River Headwaters Home Rivers Initiative!

 

The Snake River Headwaters HRI seeks to restore and protect the headwaters of the upper Snake River and its fishery, together with a diverse group of community and agency partners. The HRI will leverage the capacity of our active Jackson Hole Trout Unlimited chapter and engaged membership in and around Jackson Hole by working with partners to develop and implement high-priority restoration projects to benefit native trout and their habitats.

 

The JHTU chapter is especially grateful for the support of the many local businesses, guides, outfitters, individuals and lodges, both here and internationally, that have enabled us to partner with Trout Unlimited to expand our coldwater fisheries work in Jackson Hole through the HRI.

 

"In all my years at Trout Unlimited, I have never seen a chapter step up to protect their home waters like JHTU is doing," said Chris Wood, President and CEO of Trout Unlimited. "JHTU is setting a model of collaboration and leadership that will guarantee that our children will be able to fish for robust populations of wild and native fish in the Headwaters of the Snake."

 

TU welcomes Leslie Steen as Snake River Headwaters Project Manager to lead this effort. Steen has lived in Jackson Hole since 2007 and in the Greater Yellowstone Area for more than a decade. She brings to her new role at TU a diverse skill set and professional experience in fisheries, nonprofits, partnerships, outreach and education, including service on the JHTU board.
