“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow.” – Cormac McCarthy
Historically abundant throughout the east, the beloved eastern brook trout has been declining over the past century. Join us for a talk about the state of Virginia’s brook trout and hear from the Piedmont Environmental Council about their work with partner organizations, local landowners and state and federal agencies to insure the survival of this iconic species.
Claire Catlett and Celia Vuocolo from PEC will be sharing their adventures in trout conservation.
