CSU Emeritus Professor Kurt Fausch, award winning author and subject of a PBS documentary, will headline the March meeting of the Rocky Mountain Flycasters chapter of Trout Unlimited.
The meeting will take place Wednesday March 21st at the Ft Collins Senior Center, 1200 Raintree Drive. Social hour and a fly tying demonstration begin at 6:30, with the program at 7:00 pm. The program is free and open to the public.
Dr. Fausch is a fisheries ecologist who spent a career studying how fish make a living in streams, and how streams are linked to their riparian forests. In this talk he crosses boundaries of countries, cultures, and scientific disciplines to explore why healthy, connected rivers are essential for fish, and humans, and how we can conserve them.
His experiences during a 35 year career at CSU were chronicled in the PBS documentary RiverWebs, and the 2015 book For the Love of Rivers: A Scientistís Journey, which won the Sigurd Olson Nature Writing Award. He received lifetime achievement awards from the American Fisheries Society, the World Council of Fisheries Societies, and Fly Fishers International. For more information:
