In this episode host John McMillan is joined by Chris Wood, CEO of Trout Unlimited. They have a wide ranging discussion about Chris’s background, including an amazing story about his introduction to salmon in Alaska, how he became interested in conservation, why Idaho and the Snake River dams are so important to Chris and TU, and the array of work that TU is doing to recover salmonids and rebuild their habitat across the United States.

We also dive into Chris’s background with sports and discuss the value of team-work in conservation and ultimately, why issues like climate change and dam removal require a total team effort. For all of this, and more, tune into this week’s awesome episode with Chris and John.
