We are pleased to invite Lee Simard, Fisheries Biologist, Springfield Office to speak on the management strategies used on the Battenkill and how they may be used on the New Haven, Middlebury and our other local waters.
Lee grew up in Swanton, Vermont and attended the University of Vermont where he earned a B.S. in Environmental Sciences with a minor in Wildlife Biology in 2012. He completed his Master’s degree in Natural Resources from UVM in December, 2016 after studying the spawning behavior of invasive lake trout in Yellowstone Lake, Yellowstone National Park. As a fisheries biologist, Lee assesses, manages and protects fish populations and their habitats in lakes and streams throughout southern Vermont. He works on coldwater and warmwater sportfish populations as well as rare, endangered and threatened fish species. Lee is also in charge of the management and enhancement of the Batten Kill, which supports one of Vermont’s longstanding premier wild trout fisheries. Outside of work, Lee enjoys hiking, fishing, and cross-country skiing and is excited to explore the new opportunities in southern Vermont.
Grab a drink and catch up with friends around 6:30 pm. Brief business meeting at 7 pm, followed by the presentation. Newcomers are always welcome - bring a friend!
