Conservation is the Protect, Reconnect and Restore part of TU’s Mission. The Hemingway Chapter partners with Individuals, Businesses, Non Profits and Government agencies to accomplish its missions.


Projects are how we positively impact our local cold water fisheries and are a way for TU members to be involved.  There is nothing quite as fulfilling as working on a meaningful project with others, knowing you have helped make a difference.  Projects and Conservation opportunities vary in size, purpose and scope, from access to fish rescues to stream restoration.  Come Join us on the next project many of these only involve the time commitment of an afternoon or day.
