The Massachusetts-Rhode Island Council of Trout Unlimited works to preserve, restore, and reconnect our cold water resources.  Recent examples include our sea run brook trout protection work at the Lyman Reserve in Wareham, Massachusetts and financial assistance given by the Council and member chapters to the Franklin Land Trust for their purchase of property in Heath, MA along the West Branch of the North River.

Some of the projects the Council has been an integral part of are Red Brook and the acquisition of the Crowningshield property by the Franklin Land Trust.
