One of Minnesota Trout Unlimited’s main goals in connecting the community through a variety of outreach programs. Whether through formal education of hundreds of students with the Trout in the Classroom program, or Trout on Tap, casual monthly gatherings centered around beer, MNTU strives to connect Minnesotans with their resources.
