Pikes Peak Trout Unlimited is one of the most influential river conservation groups on the Front Range. Our goals encompass multiple aspects of conservation including Education. We take on educational projects for the sake of encouraging appreciation of the river ecosystem. Some of our educational projects occur as single day classes in the public school system. Other projects include demonstrations as public events, representation of river conservation projects at seminars and conferences, and presenting talks to audiences at a variety of public venues. These educational experiences are highly rewarding and critical to public awareness of the need to identify and protect our natural resources. Of course, these events are completely volunteer driven and rely on the talents and experiences of our diverse member base.

Within the scope of Conservation, our projects, (Past, Present, and Future) are a very important part of why we exist as an organization. For most people in our community, Trout Unlimited is well known organization devoted to the welfare of trout. Most people in our local community probably don’t realize that our Pikes Peak chapter of Trout Unlimited is devoted to creating sustainable projects for protecting and maintaining healthy trout habitat in our region.
