Welcome to the Website of T.U. Chapter 710
Nebraska’s Trout Unlimited Chapter
Nebraska TU is a growing force in the quest for cold water habitat preservation and restoration in our state. We hope to use this site to inform you about our past, present and especially future activities in support of these goals. Our current activities include working with Nebraska Game and Parks on cold water habitat restoration, and on fishing education. Our members regularly volunteer to teach both children and adults to fish, and help them learn about fish and the larger ecosystem of which they are a part. We provide seed money and continuing support for the Trout in the Classroom curriculum at schools around the state. This program teaches young people about the importance of clean and healthy water while giving them hands on experience raising fish in a controlled environment. Our chapter provided materials and labor for habitat improvement projects at Verdigre Creek in 2013, and we hope to work again with Game and Parks on their planned cold water habitat program starting this summer. We have also embarked on a partnership with Project Healing Waters to make restorative fishing opportunities available to injured and disabled veterans. This project has been met with much enthusiasm and we expect it to grow rapidly.
T.U. represents our common interest in preserving an environment in which fish and fisheries can thrive. Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have diverse views on many matters, but we all agree that our natural environment is worth protecting and that healthy fisheries are a common asset worthy of preservation.
You’ll find information about our upcoming events on our calendar. We’d love to meet you at one of them.
