Fisheries conservation talk

The first of a series of talks on conservation and preservation of the local habitat.

In the first of what they intend as a series of talks on conservation and preservation of the local habitat, the Friends of French Creek Conservation Society is hosting a discussion with retired Department of Fisheries officer Brad Rushton.

“Brad will explain the new fisheries act as an opening and then it will be more of a group discussion than a lecture,” said emcee Des Davidge.

He said it will be a casual discussion and the more people the better.

They will start at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 24, at St. Columba Church in French Creek and go for at least an hour, or as long as the conversation keeps going, Davidge said.

He said they hope to continue as a monthly series on issues related to habitat preservation in the widest sense, pointing out that “it’s all part of a whole chain, if you do one thing it can help all the others.

He said finding the right experts is harder than finding topics, suggesting they would like to do talks on Marshes and wetlands, estuaries and something from the First Nation’s perspective.

For more information call Davidge at 752-5471.
