Ron-Nev Anglers Symposium 2018

Our friends and col­leagues with the Ron­d­out-Nev­ersink Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram will be hold­ing their 5th Annu­al Angler’s Sym­po­sium at the Claryville Event Cen­ter at the Blue Hill Lodge locat­ed at 1471 Den­ning Road on Fri­day, Novem­ber 9th from 1:00–4:00pm. This is a great pro­gram for any­one who is inter­est­ed in the Catskill region fish­ery.

Head­lin­ing this year’s sym­po­sium will be his­to­ri­an Diane Galusha who will speak about Edwin Hewitt, an author and nat­u­ral­ist whose prop­er­ty along the Nev­ersink Riv­er inspired him to write his Hand­book of Stream Improve­ment and Secrets of Salmon.

Also pre­sent­ing will be Shaun McAdams from Trout Unlim­it­ed who will describe his work with wild brook trout in New York and Penn­syl­va­nia. In addi­tion, Car­ri Marschn­er and Char­lotte Malm­borg of Cor­nell Uni­ver­si­ty will speak about cit­i­zen sci­ence oppor­tu­ni­ties to help save hem­lock trees. Hem­locks are vital­ly impor­tant ripar­i­an tree species that are under threat from cli­mate change and inva­sive species like the hem­lock wool­ly adel­gid. There will also be a walk­ing tour of a near­by stream­bank restora­tion project.
