Rocky River Trout Unlimited
Howdy and Welcome to the Rocky River Chapter of Trout Unlimited in Charlotte, NC!
We are committed to the mission of our national organization to Protect-Reconnect-Restore- and Sustain our coldwater natural resources. Our passion is to preserve for our children and their children the joy of standing in clean water in a beautiful setting, breathing clean air, and laying out line.
Education is a cornerstone of our effort with an emphasis on teaching our youth to understand, respect and appreciate the wonder and fragility of our natural world. We actively participate in projects for stream restoration, streamside clean-up and riparian repair. We team up with other groups to protect our precious North Carolina watersheds.
We are all important as individuals, but we are powerful in our collective voices and actions. Come join us at a monthly meeting or take a day trip with us on a nearby stream or camp with us at Appletree on the Nantahala River. Enjoy the warmth of fellowship in a common interest and the satisfaction of effort with like-minded spirits in protecting our coldwater resources.
Celebrating our 31st Anniversary this year, the Rocky River Chapter is the Charlotte-area chapter of Trout Unlimited. If you are a member of Trout Unlimited and live in the Charlotte area, you are already a member of RRTU, and we would hope you would join us for one of our monthly meetings. There is no additional membership fee join us, as your TU National membership is the only requirement to be a member of RRTU. If you are not a member of Trout Unlimited and would like to join, www.tu.org is a link that you can use.
The Board of Directors and Officers welcome your comments, suggestions and ideas to make your chapter membership both rewarding and enjoyable. Your involvement in chapter business and activities is encouraged and we hope you'll be able to volunteer your talent and a little of your time to help the Chapter continue to be one of the most exciting, hard working and fun chapters in the state. I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting.
President, Rocky River Trout Unlimited
