Program areas at TU

Protect:in 2018, tu protected 1,164 river miles and increased protection on 3,000,709 million acres. Bristol bay in Alaska remained one of tu's largest protection priorities in 2018 and will remain a focus in 2019. The proposed pebble mine presents a catastrophic threat to the world-class salmon ecosystem in bristol bay and would forever mar the magnificent landscape. We are aggressively pursuing protections through multiple channels, including a federal permitting process and administrative and legislative action at the state Wyoming, tu organized and mobilized a diverse stakeholder group in opposition to a proposal to lease approximately 173,000 acres of the greater little mountain area for oil and gas development. The area contains exceptional big game habitat and is also home to rare Colorado river cutthroat Trout. Wyoming's governor and the sweetwater county commissioners were among those who expressed support for protecting the area. California's recent drought brought attention to much ...

Restore:deep in the heart of central Idaho, tu has been hard at work for more than a decade restoring rivers damaged by mining and livestock grazing. In 2018, our Idaho staff restored sections of the lemhi and yankee fork rivers by installing livestock fencing, removing dredge tailings to restore floodplain habitat, and restoring sinuous stream channels that had been straightened. Since 2009, almost 30 river miles and 100 acres of floodplain habitat have been restored. These rivers are home to salmon and steelhead that migrate over 800 miles from the pacific ocean to complete their life cycle and spawn the next generation. Tu's technical assistance program in Pennsylvania supported more than 40 projects last year ranging from abandoned mine reclamation to streambank stabilization and instream habitat improvement. In west Virginia, tu has now worked with almost 400 farmers to improve habitat for brook Trout. And in the midwest's driftless area ...

Reconnect:on the northwest coast of Oregon, tu and several partners continued work on the salmon superhwy project, an ambitious undertaking to open more than 178 miles of steelhead and salmon habitat in six coastal rivers over the next decade. The project will boost local economy, create jobs, stimulate the outdoor recreation and fishing sectors, and benefit local farmers. Tu removed three more fish barriers in 2018 bringing to 20 the total number of barriers removed, which has reconnected 60 miles of habitat.impassable culverts are not the only obstacles that disconnect fish habitat. Small dams fracture habitat as well and are common in many watersheds. In 2018, we removed two dams in northern coastal rivers (the russian and south fork eel) to reopen salmon and steelhead habitat. These actions were part of tu's north coast coho project, a major restoration initiative that just celebrated its 20th anniversary. In the great lakes ...
