2015 Colorado Trout Unlimited Rendezvous:
April 17th - 19th 2015
This is the largest annual meeting held for every TU members, chapters and supporters. This 3-day weekend is packed with workshops, presentations on important conservation issues, the annual business meeting for the CTU Council where new officers will be elected, plenty of time for networking, sharing ideas and socializing, and a Saturday evening banquet featuring delicious food and presentation of CTU's annual awards. This weekend is great for all members (new and old), chapter leaders and anyone interested in what CTU is going to be up to for the next year.
The theme for Rendezvous 2015 is REDDStone, Hatching Colorado's Trout Future. The next few years will be pivotal for the future of Colorado's rivers and trout populations. As threats such as population rises, natural disasters, oil and gas development and uncertain political leadership become more of abundant, it is as important as ever to look at the health of our watersheds and develop a plan for protecting our valued resources. This year at Rendezvous our theme is centered around planning for our future. The presentations and workshops are designed to ask the hard questions, and learn how each of us can be a valuable player in the future of protecting Colorado's trout.
We have lined up speakers this year that will guide our conversations about planning for the future. We are very excited to announce that James Eklund, Director of the Colorado Water Conservation Board and Eric Kuhn, with the Colorado River Conservation District will be presenting Colorado's Water Plan and answering our questions about how watershed health will be incorporated into the plan. Doug Krieger with Colorado Parks and Wildlife will also be in attendance presenting their Master Plan for the next couple of years. In addition to outside agency updates there will be both National and Colorado TU staff, and Chapter Leaders presenting on what TU is doing in CO to plan for our future and protect our water ways and trout populations. Below is a link to the agenda which is currently in Draft form. We will be updating it as we confirm titles of presentations and other logistics.
