There's something incredibly special about the waters of the Driftless region, and it isn't just the density or quality of trout finning in the currents or the streamside grasses waving in the breeze.
What truly makes the Driftless special is the army of scientists, restoration specialist and nonprofit and agency partners working to study, care for and recover these fabled streams.
Join Trout Unlimited's Driftless Area Restoration Effort (TU DARE) staff and volunteers for an important two day virtual symposium on March 7 & 8 featuring some of the most powerful and important voices in the partnership we have built to conduct this work.
Each day will feature a range of experts speaking for approximately 20 minutes each on their area of focus and taking your questions. You can attend the full line-up, or use the link provided when you register to drop-in on one or several talks throughout both days.
