Salmon Habitat Restoration Presentation on January 20th

Please join the Upper Kennebec Valley Chapter for an informative presentation on Salmon habitat and habitat restoration efforts in the Kennebec Watershed, including the Sandy River. We will be meeting at the Farmington Town office (front door) on Thursday, January 20th, from 6-8 p.m.

Ron Joseph will be our speaker. Ron recently retired as a wildlife biologist in Maine where he spent 33-years working for the Maine Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He spent most of his career restoring rivers(removing dams) and degraded fish & wildlife habitat by working cooperatively with private landowners. Ron is keenly interested in helping salmon populations recover in the Sandy River watershed. He will present a power point program on salmon in the greater Kennebec River watershed including the Sandy River.

This meeting is also sponsored by the Farmington Conservation Commission. This will be an interesting presentation for landowners and those just interested in the biology of Salmon. The event is free and open to the public.
