Wednesday, October 12th at 7:30 p.m. – Windham Regional Woodlands Association presents a talk by Vermont State Representative David L. Deen, Chairperson of the House Committee on Fish, Wildlife, & Water Resources and Upper Valley River Steward of the Connecticut River Watershed Council. Representative Deen will explain the inseparable connection between trees and trout.
You will learn that it is basically a story of the transfer of energy that starts with the sun and – perhaps with an intermediate stop on your dinner plate – ultimately ends with the fish’s final decomposition, its component chemical elements and energy thus returning to nature. Deen will show us that the course of this transfer is facilitated – indeed, made possible – by good riparian woodland husbandry, the unobstructed flow of cool, clean water, and for some of us, additionally, a good bit of angling skill and luck.
This talk is free, open to the public, and wheelchair accessible. We are pleased to announce that it is being co-sponsored by the Connecticut River Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the Vermont Learning Collaborative, and the Southeastern Vermont Watershed Alliance.
Directions: Vermont Learning Collaborative, 471 U.S. Route 5, Dummerston, Vt. From exit 3 on I-91, go north on Route 5 (Putney Rd). The building is about 1.8 miles north of the traffic circle.
