Twin Cities Chapter (TCTU)
With over 2000 members, we are one of the largest TU chapters in the nation. We work to restore and protect metro-area trout streams such as the Vermillion River, Hay Creek and Trout Brook. We also support the conservation work of sister chapters in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. Serving a large urban area, we are heavily involved in education and events to build a thriving and diverse community of anglers and conservationists.
Trout Unlimited National (TU)
Founded in Michigan in 1959, Trout Unlimited is a national non-profit organization with 300,000 members and supporters. Our staff and volunteers work from coast to coast to protect, reconnect, restore, and sustain trout and salmon habitat on behalf of today’s anglers and future generations of sportsmen and women who value the connection between healthy, intact habitat and angling opportunity. Trout Unlimited has a strong grassroots presence with nearly 400 chapters in 36 state councils.
Minnesota Council (MNTU)
Established in 1959, the same year as TU, Minnesota Trout Unlimited represents several thousand members in five chapters. Together, MNTU chapters have restored habitat in more than 75 miles of streams and 6 lakes. The Council is led by representatives from each chapter, as well as at-large representatives. The Council serves the chapters by providing resources for issues of statewide importance and educating policy makers, agencies, and the public about challenges affecting watershed health and coldwater fisheries.
