Upcoming Scheduled Chapter Events:
May 29th : Our first 2013 Streamside Meeting @ the Route 165 Arcadia Management Check Station Pavilion, Exeter RI. On the Wood River.
Important message: TU 225 Narragansett Chapter Board of Directors to our fellow members in regards to recent postings on the Protect Rhode Island Brook Trout Faceboook Page.
The Board of Directors and officers of the Narragansett Chapter of TU have been following the postings on this site. Anyone who is interested in this page should be aware of the following:
The Board of Directors and the officers of this Chapter have selected a process that will enable an informed decision on this issue in a reasonable time frame. We do not intend to re-debate this issue at every membership meeting while the study is ongoing.
To Summarize, TU225 is working to clarify the applicability of TU National's stocking policy in the Wood River, but instead of blindly applying the policy, this Chapter intends to make the necessary decision based on the information that is directly applicable to the Wood River. This decision will also involve working with our partners in protecting the Wood for all users of this multi-customer watershed. Making an exppedient decision on the applicability of this confused policy statement would be unfair and a blatant disservice to our members, partners, and other people who enjoy the Wood river and the Arcadia Management Area.
If you would like to comment on the posting or discuss your thoughts on the subject please do so in the established forum site under the approporiate subject line.

TU 225 Past Projects 2013
Call to action! Huge Success !
TU 225 members and volunteers met on Saturday March 23rd. at the RT 165 Check Station in The Arcadia Management Area for 9:OO AM. On Saturday we installed all line debris boxes along established entrance sites. In addition to installing the line debris boxes, The Chapter was asked by Arcadia Forestry to assist with a clean up. There were about 30 or more people including State employees, Chapter TU 225 volunteers, and friends of The Wood River spread out all along the places that need immediate attention. The harsh New england winter had left many fallen trees clogging acess and flow of the river. The group assisted on both the trails and waterways of the Upper Wood River area in an effort to keep the river from further damage and prepare for the 2013 Trout Fishing Season and river access for Opening Day.
April 20th Streamside clean up update:
Despite the weather in the morning the chapter had a decent turnout. We collected 22 bags of garbage and debris ranging from the smallest candy wrapper up to the largest broken lawn chair. Thanks to all who participated, we will keep everyone informed of the next clean up event later this year.
