Mission Statement

Restoring freshwater health through innovation and education.

Description

At Oregon Trout, we're not just about fish. We actively work to restore freshwater health through innovative restoration. Our goal is simple: return health to every stream in the state, while inviting every student in Oregon to act as stewards of their home waters.

Successfully launched in fall 2005, Oregon Trout's Healthy Waters Institute (HWI) forges a lifelong caretaking bond between students and their local watersheds by inviting them to participate in inquiry-based field experiences and locally-driven stewardship projects. HWI works collaboratively with teachers, school administration, and community partners to provide a supportive framework through which schools can easily offer students multiple interactions with the natural world relevant to existing curricula. HWI supports student projects by providing them with opportunities and resources to develop and implement independently driven projects addressing real community needs. By uniting education, community, and local stewardship, HWI takes an active role in cultivating the next generation of watershed stewards.
