OQUOSSOC — The Rangeley Region Guides & Sportsmen’s Association will hold its monthly membership meeting Thursday, Aug.15, beginning with a potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m. at its clubhouse on Old Skiway Road.
Guest speakers will be Bob Mallard and Emily Bastian from the Native Fish Coalition, a nonpartisan, grassroots donor-funded, non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation, preservation and restoration of wild native fish.
The presentation will focus on the rare Arctic char and the coalition’s efforts to monitor the long-term health of the last remaining populations of wild native Arctic charr in the contiguous United States.
