Emily Baldauff is the new Mid-Atlantic Organizer for Trout Unlimited. She is a native of northeastern Pennsylvania and is based from a home office in Throop, Pa.
Emily has worked extensively throughout the state and Mid-Atlantic region in previous roles. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Resource Management from Keystone College, LaPlume, Pa. She is also currently the Susquehanna North Branch Water Trail Coordinator for Endless Mountains Heritage Region in Towanda, Pa. and an Adjunct Professor at Keystone College in LaPlume, Pa. teaching Environmental Science and Environmental Management & Policy.
Coldwater habitats throughout the Mid‐Atlantic are at risk due to pressures from development, energy production, and polluted runoff, among others. One of TU’s key focus areas in the Mid‐Atlantic is assuring that coldwater streams receive the highest level of protection available.
In her new role, Emily will address these needs by helping lead campaigns to protect important coldwater habitats. She will also work with multiple stakeholders—in particular TU volunteers and other hunters and anglers, to become effective conservation advocates, and find opportunities to mobilize and engage members with decision‐makers. In addition, Emily will be assisting in monitoring, analyzing, and commenting on state‐level legislation and policy.
