 About TU:

Fox Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

We are an active chapter of Trout Unlimited located in the Fox Valley southwest of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Our membership of 200 members is actively engaged in Trout Unlimited National's mission. In 2013 FVTU volunteers logged 2329 hours in programs and events that support the mission of Trout Unlimited.

Trout Unlimited's mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America's coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. TU accomplishes this mission on local, state and national levels with an extensive and dedicated volunteer network. TU's national office, based just outside of Washington, D.C., and its regional offices employ professionals who testify before Congress, publish a quarterly magazine, intervene in federal legal proceedings, and work with the organization?s 125,000 volunteers in 500 chapters nationwide to keep them active and involved in conservation issues.
