Annual Reports

Colorado TU Annual Report 2015Collaboration is at the heart of many of our efforts, as we teamed with irrigators on conservation projects and flood restoration, engaged with public and private grantors to stretch the impact of our donors’ generous support, and partnered with agencies and water users to launch the cooperative “Learning by Doing” effort to conserve the Colorado River headwaters. The local relationships built by our 24 local Chapters allow TU to be an effective partner with these efforts all over the state.” Marshall Pendergrass, President, Colorado TU

Colorado TU Annual Report 2014. “Conservation success doesn’t happen overnight – it takes thoughtful planning, effective execution, and perseverance in the face of challenges. In 2014, Colorado TU enjoyed some remarkable successes that were the culmination of years of effort. From the Roan Plateau to the Fraser River, we saw campaigns that started a decade or more ago reach major milestones.” Rick Matsumoto, President, Colorado TU

Colorado TU Annual Report 2013. “We’ve made ourselves stronger and more professional, we’re more disciplined about the business of non-profit conservation, and as a result we’ve ensured that our mission will continue to advance for years to come. As you look through this report and see some of our results, I hope you’ll agree that our efforts are paying off for our mission – from river restoration to youth education.” Rick Matsumoto, President, Colorado TU

Colorado TU Annual Report 2012.  “In fiscal year 2012, Trout Unlimited in Colorado invested approximately $1.6 million toward its programs for conservation, education, and grassroots activity, as well as nearly $1.2 million for on-the-ground projects in partnership with local chapters. Examples of what we’ve accomplished together include the victories on the Roan Plateau, on the Upper Colorado River at Windy Gap, and with the Colorado rule for conserving roadless lands. These important accomplishments will have direct impact on the health of our rivers and streams, and your opportunity to enjoy (and fish!) them well into the future.” Sinjin Eberle, President, Colorado TU

Colorado TU Annual Report 2011. “Trout Unlimited in Colorado invested nearly $1.4 million toward its core programs for conservation, education and grassroots activity, as well as nearly $500,000 for on-the-ground projects in partnership with local chapters. That investment was leveraged by the remarkable network of grassroots volunteers that is TU’s hallmark. Colorado TU members contributed more than 58,000 volunteer hours during the past year, equal to the work of 29 full-time employees and worth an additional $1.3 million.” Sinjin Eberle, President, Colorado TU

Colorado TU Annual Report 2010. “Between the energy and involvement of the chapters, the savvy and experience of the state council, and the expertise and dedication of National TU staff, Colorado TU has had a banner year in terms of the number of accomplishments, the rise in member involvement, and the strategic importance of the successes. As you read this year’s annual report, I hope you feel some pride in being a part of this success, because it certainly does not happen without you.” Sinjin Eberle, President, Colorado TU

Colorado TU Annual Report 2009. “Most people who live here cite something about the outdoors as one of the primary reasons they are here – it’s a great place to live. But no natural habitat can exist without clean and plentiful water, and in 2009 Colorado Trout Unlimited once again fulfilled the role of being the best sportsman and conservation group focused on protecting and restoring Colorado’s rivers. It’s what we know, it’s what we are passionate about, and it’s what we do.” Sinjin Eberle, President, Colorado TU

Colorado TU Annual Report 2007. “From statewide policy making to local education and habitat projects, our success and growth is largely due to the remarkable work of TU volunteers. In 2007, our members throughout the state contributed a record 46,000+ volunteer hours to promote conservation of Colorado’s streams and to help educate the next generation of anglers and conservationists.” David Nickum, Executive Director, Colorado TU
