Our chapter will be meeting Monday, November 14 starting at 6PM at Maine Sport Outfitters on Rt.One in Rockport.

Conservationist Tony Grassi will present a plan for Rehabilitation of the Montgomery Dam and Harbor Park Seawall at the Georges River Trout Unlimited meeting in Rockport November 14 

 
Georges River Trout Unlimited (GRTU) welcomes conservationist, Tony Grassi, for a talk on Montgomery Dam and the Harbor Park Seawall. Grassi and his wife, Sally, have lived in Camden since 2003 and he is the owner of The Mill at Freedom Falls in Freedom, Maine. Grassi devotes his time to addressing environmental issues. He served as the Chairman of the Board of American Rivers from 1996 to 1999; Global Chairman of The Nature Conservancy, one of the world’s leading environmental organizations, from 2000 to 2003; and Chairman of the Fundraising Committee for the Penobscot River Restoration Trust. He also has chaired the Butler Conservation Fund since 2005 and currently serves as the Chairman of the Advisory Committee of the Senator George J. Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions at the University of Maine in Orono. Grassi will present a plan for the Rehabilitation of the Montgomery Dam and the Harbor Park Seawall in order to provide fish passage up the Megunticook River out of Camden Harbor. The plan was developed by Tony and Sally Grassi in conjunction with landscape architects Stephen Mohr and Tanya Seredin, engineering firm Gartley & Dorsky, and Bud Brown of Ecoanalytics.

Trout Unlimited is a non-profit organization with a mission dedicated to conserve, protect and restore North America's cold water fisheries and their watersheds. The GRTU meeting November 14 will be held upstairs in the fly shop at Maine Sport in Rockport. The meeting will start at 6 pm with “Trout Talk,” an informal gathering for those who wish to visit before the presentation. The formal meeting and featured presentation begin at 7pm. GRTU conducts a raffle directly following the speaker. TU membership is open to all. GRTU meetings are free and open to the public. Visit us on Facebook, or online at www.georgesrivertu.org.
