Learn about the history, life cycle and habitat requirements of Eastern brook trout in the North and South Rivers. We will discuss the changes in the rivers and their banks that have brought about a decline in brook trout numbers. We’ll then walk along Iron Mine Brook and talk about where wild brook trout persist in the North and South River systems, and why they have been able to survive in these small tributary streams of our watershed to the present time. We will also talk about ways to protect the remaining brook trout habitat in the watershed, and how NSRWA’s stream restoration work is vital for the continued survival of wild brook trout as our climate begins to change. The tour will begin at the Hanover Canoe Launch off Indian Head Drive in Hanover. The walk is free, but registration is required.
