The award winning Icicle Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited has contributed many hours and funds to enhance salmon habitat and education opportunities at the Leavenworth Fish Hatchery Complex.
TU was started in 1982 and membership has grown from 12 to 100. Some of their many contributions to the hatchery complex include construction of a handicapped fishing ramp in 1992, assisting spawning operations and kids fishing days and offering a salmon BBQ at the Wenatchee River Salmon Festival.
Also, in cooperation with the Leavenworth Hatchery, Barn Beach Reserve and the Cascade School District, the program “Salmon in the Classroom” has put aquariums in classroom and developed science enhancement lessons on fish habitat.
