Conserving, restoring and protecting trout and their coldwater streams and rivers
OBTU To Celebrate 50th Anniversary in 2023
As we approach OBTU’s 50th birthday, we have begun to ponder our past. If you have been a member long enough, perhaps you remember this vintage OBTU logo circa approximately early 1980’s.
Planning is underway for 50th anniversary celebrations to take place in 2023. We have much to celebrate. It is rather remarkable that our 100% volunteer organiztion has been passed along through a long line of cold water conservationists who have kept OBTU vibrant for 5 decades and counting!
