The Western Washington TU Rendezvous is just around the corner!


2019 TU Western Regional Rendezvous

March 14-17, 2019

Shelton, Washington


Join TU volunteer leaders from across the West for an enlightening and inspirational experience in the evergreen state March 14-17, 2019 in the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula along the South Puget Sound in Shelton, Washington. 


The TU Western Rendezvous is an occasion to be inspired – by tried and true lessons from volunteer leaders, inspiring conversations with newfound friends and a thoughtful agenda in a beautiful place. The event will weave the unique features of Washington state by incorporating regional culture, tribal relationships and the conservation histories of salmon, steelhead and trout into every facet of your learning experience. We hope to provide an experience that inspires you and offers new perspective on the conservation issues we face while fostering fresh energy to collectively impact our coldwater fisheries.


We can’t wait for you to join us in Shelton!
