In 2015, after years of work to restore native Southern Appalachian Brook Trout to select streams in the park, all Smokies streams became open to anglers for the first time since 1934. Work continues in the park to remove non-native fish and restore native species in streams where conditions are favorable for them. Native mussels are also being restored. Kulp will discuss ongoing research and restoration projects in the park.

Clinch River Chapter TU works to preserve and protect the Clinch River tailwater and its watershed through conservation projects and through education of children and adults in aquatic natural resources. Meetings are held the second Thursday of the month in the parish hall at St. Francis Episcopal Church, Norris, except when outdoor activities are scheduled. For more information, visit crctu.org.
