Trout Unlimited has launched a new Stream Explorer membership program for TU’s youth. As Trout Unlimited notes, “TU’s future conservation work will be recruiting the next generation of coldwater stewards. With each passing year, kids have less free time, spend more time inside in front of screens and are more disconnected from the habitats that sustain trout.” TU’s new program, entitled Stream Explorers was introduced to assist parents in connecting their kids with the importance of healthy stream habitat and the impact that this has on future generations of trout and salmon.

The new Stream Explorer membership is for kids 18 years and younger and costs only $12 per year. Any parent who is a serious fly angler wil appreciate the value and purpose that this program represents.
