Be a partner in our mission.
From reconnecting habitat for fish by removing barriers to converting rice fields into fish food, CalTrout is at the forefront of protecting California's wild fish and rivers—and it's all made possible by you, our generous donors. Join today to drive innovative, science-based solutions, build partnerships in key geographies for wild fish, and establish precedent to influence policy across the state.
A monthly gift is the easiest, most effective way for you to support our native fish and the waters they call home.
Tackling California’s biggest challenges takes ongoing action – which cannot happen without steady, reliable support from champions like you. California Trout's monthly givers are the bedrock of our organization. Commit to a monthly gift billed to your credit card, and we'll throw in some extra goodies!
