February 8th: Conservation Projects On Our Home Waters
• February 8, 2017 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The overarching mission of Trout Unlimited is “to conserve, protect, and restore North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds,” while the TU vision is that “by the next generation, we will ensure that robust populations of native and wild coldwater fish once again thrive within their North American range, so that our children can enjoy healthy fisheries in their home waters”.
Join us on February 8th as we discuss the progress and plans for the Candlewood Valley Chapter’s efforts to achieve this mission and vision in our home waters. Pootatuck Watershed Association intern and TU volunteer Cole Baldino will review chapter efforts to support our partner in the reintroduction of wild brook trout into the Deep Brook Wild trout Management Area. And we will also discuss conservation challenges and opportunities and chapter plans for 2017 and beyond. Come learn how YOU can participate in these efforts.
Remember, “If YOU take care of the fish, the fishing will take care of itself!”
The meeting is free and open to members, guests and the general public. It is held at Stony Hill Fire Department, 59 Stony Hill Road, Bethel and starts at 7:30 p.m. but doors open at 7 p.m. for pizza, soda and some good conversation with fellow anglers. Don’t miss out on the raffle too.
