The Griffith Circle

"The natural resources we love can and will respond to us with equal love."  -George Griffith

Trout Unlimited was born in 1959 when George Griffith brought together a group of anglers at his home on the banks of the Au Sable River in Michigan. George Griffith and these other founders made a plan to unite the angling community around a common purpose: to take care of the wild and native trout and salmon we all enjoy and appreciate.

The Griffith Circle honors the legacy of our founders while raising essential resources to continue the march toward their vision. Griffith Circle members show their commitment to all of Trout Unlimited's important work by making annual contributions of $1,000 or more. Your gifts will support the full range of Trout Unlimited projects–conservation science as well as environmental education, advocacy, hands-on restoration work, and so much more.
