Trout and Stout: The Maine Brook Trout Pond Survey Project

  • Friday, Apr 18, 2014 7:00pm – 8:00pm
  • Sea Dog Restaurant  Bangor

Join us for a program time featuring Jeff Reardon from Trout Unlimited and fisheries biologist Merry Gallagher from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife. Jeff and Merry will discuss a citizen-science project (co-sponsored by Maine Audubon) in which Maine anglers are helping IF&W learn more about previously undocumented brook trout populations, simply by visiting remote ponds in Maine, fishing them for trout, and reporting back their findings.
