Colorado Trout Unlimited has over 10,000 members representing 23 chapters across the state. They act as advocates and conservators for their home rivers, conducting projects in stream restoration, water quality protection, and more. The on-the-ground, grassroots efforts of our members and volunteers are what sets CTU apart from most other conservation groups.
Colorado Trout Unlimited is an extraordinarily effective conservation organization whose resume includes defeating harmful dam and diversion projects, passing important stream flow legislation, spearheading youth conservation education, protecting water quality, improving drought-stricken rivers, promoting water conservation, restoring native trout, and much more.
Though perhaps best known for its role in defeating the Two Forks Dam proposal in 1980, Colorado Trout Unlimited’s influence can be seen on hundreds of miles of rivers ranging from Durango to Denver to Fort Collins.
