Aquatic Renewal Stream Restoration Progam | Adopt a Trout | Stewardship License Project | Yellow Fish Road
Trout Unlimited Canada’s primary education program is the Yellow Fish Road™ (YFR) program. YFR works to inform all Canadians of the problems and solutions to stormdrain (non-point source) pollution, Canada’s leading cause of freshwater pollution. This program is directly linked to TUC’s mission to conserve, protect and restore Canada’s/Alberta’s freshwater ecosystems and their coldwater resources for current and future generations. This unique and FREE program consists of two components, an active project, consisting of stormdrain marking and a class/group presentation, available through many of our 40 YFR partners across the country. Please contact us to see if there is an YFR partner in your area, otherwise we can send you the supplies you’ll need to do your action project email@example.com
Aquatic Renwal Program-One of the biggest issues TUC faces is providing input and technical guidance on watershed and stream rehabilitation to our chapters along with other groups and organizations dedicated to rehabilitation of Canada’s ‘natural infrastructure’.
The expertise of TUC’s scientific staff has been channeled into the Aquatic Renwal Progam, the development of a series of workshops designed to help chapters and community groups develop the expertise to assess the state of their watersheds and streams, identify key causes of environmental problems, to develop strategic plans and implement these rehabilitation plans and techniques.
The Aquatic Renewal Program, is a partnership between TUC, the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development at the University of Guelph, Fisheries Policy Section of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and representatives of the Ontario Stewardship Program (Wellington Stewardship and Waterloo Stewardship) funded by the Canada-Ontario Agreement. Additional support comes from TUC members on the Grand River Fisheries Management Plan Implementation Committee.
