About Us

We work to keep our country’s cold water fisheries and their watersheds safe from environmental threats for this and future generations of anglers to enjoy.

Click here to be magically transported to the (National) Trout Unlimited website where you can join up. Specify Penn’s Woods West Chapter (042).

You’ll pay for membership in TU, and membership in the Chapter is complimentary…no local dues or fees.

Be sure to give TU an up-to-date email address because that’s the way we let members know what’s going on.
