Stream health is focus of Trout Unlimited program on Feb. 26

The Ashokan-Pepacton Watershed Chapter of Trout Unlimited will host a presentation on “Extreme Flow Events and Stream Health: What We Know and What We Don’t” on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Boiceville Inn.
The presentation will be offered by Mark Vian, who serves as Stream Management Program Project Manager in the Rondout and Neversink Basins for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection.
The discussion will focus on the linkages between large flows and the dynamics of the stream ecosystem, using data from various stream assessments undertaken by the DEP and its partners at the Soil and Water Conservation District programs to help us better understand those linkages and support good management. The group will also consider aspects of Catskills streams that remain to be researched in the coming years.  
The APWCTU’s February meeting at the Boiceville Inn begins at 7 p.m. with a short business session. The presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. The entire evening is open to the public at no charge. For more information, please visit www.apwctu.org.
