Wilton Library, Trout Unlimited, the Norwalk River Watershed Association, and the Wilton Land Conservation Trust present a two-part Webinar Series on Wilton’s Comstock Brook--Its Importance as a Trout Brook, Threats to its Health, and What We Can Do to Restore It
Comstock Brook provides Wilton and Norwalk with drinking water and is home to some of our watershed’s only native brook trout—which is exciting for fishermen but is also an indicator of a healthy aquatic ecosystem, and one we as a community need to recognize and work together to protect. The Brook is currently threatened by storm-water runoff, habitat fragmentation, dams, and water company withdrawals. All of these impacts are magnified by the impacts of climate change which are being increasingly felt. We would like to open a town-wide discussion about how we can advocate for protecting and restoring it.
Please join us for this important community conversation and learn how you can play a role in protecting and conserving this precious stream:
Monday, August 31 - 7pm - “Bee” The Change: Protect Wilton’s Rivers by Joining the Pollinator Pathway
Louise Washer of the Norwalk River Watershed Association, and Donna Merrill of the Wilton Land Conservation Trust, will present a two-part talk where they will lay out specific steps Wiltonians can take in their own yards to help restore water quality in the Comstock Brook and Norwalk River while also bringing more birds, bees and butterflies to their yards. Learn the importance of working together with your neighbors to help protect more land in Wilton, which is the key to providing healthy water and wildlife habitat.
