New Member Information


Welcome to the Greater Boston Chapter of Trout Unlimited (GBTU) #013.

Our chapter is dedicated to the mission and vision of TU locally, regionally and nationally.



Our vision is for communities across America to engage in the work of repairing and renewing the rivers, streams, and other waters on which we all depend.



Our mission is to bring together diverse interests to care for and recover rivers and streams so our children can experience the joy of wild and native trout and salmon.



The wisdom of nature. Conservation is an ethical obligation.

Community and the power of people. We can solve our problems if we work together.

Hard work. Problems can only be solved if we are willing to roll up our sleeves and get to work.



Resourceful: We see opportunity in challenges. Rather than simply treating symptoms, we find pragmatic, lasting solutions.

Science-based: We are innovative and base our efforts on sound science to drive conservation action.

Collaborative: We operate through non-partisan collaboration and partnership. We work across differences.

Inclusive: We listen to, value, and respect all people and communities, and seek diverse voices and perspectives.

United: We mobilize behind a shared vision.

Hopeful: We are optimists and believe in a better future.


The full TU Strategic Plan can be found here 


From river cleanups, scientific assessments and restoration projects in our home waters, the Neponset River Watershed, to teaching middle & high school students, about caring for the environment through the love of fly fishing. GBTU provides a myriad of opportunities for anyone interested or curious to get involved.


Come to a meeting, join us for an event, or reach out if you have questions! We would love to share our mission with you and introduce you to the joys cold, clean water can bring.
