Five RIvers Trout Unlimited Spring Banquet

Saturday, May 18, 2019
5:30pm to 8:30pm
Powerhouse Science Center

Our spring banquet is our primary fundraising event for the year and proceeds benefit projects critical to our local watersheds. The event is open to the public.

There's an awful lot to celebrate and acknowledge this year. From the re-discovery of the San Juan lineage cutthroat once thought to be extinct to the ongoing work at Hermosa Creek that once completed will represent the longest contiguous stretch of Colorado River cutthroat habitat in the state.

The banquet is a catered event and will feature silent and live auction prizes such as guided fishing trips, gear, artwork and more.

Tickets ($45 each / $80 per couple) can be bought online by clicking the Tickets button (please note that processing fees will be added to your online ticket order). Tickets can also be bought at Duranglers (cash or check only), at the door or by contacting Buck Skillen @ bskillen759@gmail.com.

Five Rivers Trout Unlimited is an entirely volunteer organization and one-hundred percent of all proceeds from the banquet go towards our mission of protecting our coldwater fisheries. Just as important as helping make our mission possible, the event provides an opportunity to spend a fun evening in the company of fellow anglers who share your passion for fishing and conservation.
