AmeriCorps National Planning Grant FY 2011
Trout Unlimited's Watershed Students & Stewards Project
Trout Unlimited (TU) is a national non-profit group that protects and restores streams for native trout and salmon. One of TU's primary goals is to engage youth in this work, introducing them to an outdoor world from which they have become disconnected. A Planning Grant would help pinpoint communities where Americorps members could help connect youth with local TU conservation projects. AmeriCorps members will gain key vocational skills as they assist TU staff and volunteers with field projects and community outreach events.
