13th Annual Native and Wild Trout Conference - Virtual
April 21, 2022
7:00p.m. - 8:30p.m. (AZ)

The Native and Wild Trout conference is attended by those interested in learning the current and future status of native and wild trout in Arizona. Our mission is to spark the interest of developing future plans to promote, restore and manage these native and wild coldwater fish species.
This conference, which was previously held in-person, will take place as a virtual event. Premiering for one night, live presentations will be given and a Q&A session will follow.
