Eastern Brook Trout are a poster child for the direct impacts of climate change. When stream temperatures stay above 20 degrees Celsius for more than a few hours, brook trout either have to find colder water or die. Is there a coldwater stream on your property or a property you seek to protect? Will the aquatic habitat and its key species survive the effects of climate change? Can you take steps to help secure future water supplies and habitat productivity? Cold water ecosystems that support trout are at high risk from climate change. Without action almost 50% of trout habitat is projected to be lost in the western United States. Addressing this challenge requires land managers take steps to understand the status of streams on their properties through data collection, and developing strategies for removing barriers to fish migration and restoring or improving habitat. This session will detail how the science and land conservancy programs of Trout Unlimited are assisting land trusts in identifying, documenting and then protecting land with critical coldwater habitat. These partnerships involve citizen science and the development and implementation of habitat restoration and adaptation plans. Land trusts and TU have used both professionals and volunteers to collect important data on stream ecology, flood vulnerability and stream geomorphology to design and implement restoration projects to mitigate climate risks.
