2nd Annual Anglers Symposium Presentations Oct 2, 2015

Introduction to Rondout Neversink Stream Program, Karen Rauter

Biological Water Quality Monitoring/Assessment, Brian Duffy NYS DEC

Bioassessment of Macroinvertebrates, Martin Rosenfeld NYC DEP

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid: A Formidable Pest We Can Manage, Mark Whitmore Cornell University

Come meet three rock stars of regional science who will speak about the macroinvertebrates and hemlock forests that provide the foundation of a healthy food web in the Rondout and Neversink ecosystems.  Without this rich river web, you’d have a pretty bad day of fishing. So would the eagles and otters. What stories do these critters tell us about the past, present and future of our rivers? Join us for this rare opportunity to learn more about conditions at the headwaters of two of the Catskills’ fly fishing gems: the Rondout and Neversink. Frost Valley YMCA 12 Noon-4 p.m. Friday, October 2. More info here
